CHEAP! E-tec XD100 Oil

Who fancies getting together and importing a couple of 55 gallon drums.

http://www.domo-online.com/evinrudexd100

$2,854 for the oil
$600 for shipping (for 2 barrels)
$499 VAT at 17.5%

$85 customs duty at 3%

So a total of $4,038.00

2,552 in total

or 23.20 per gallon that's quite a bit lower than half price!!

I reckon 10 people need to club together. 250.00 each an you get 11 gallons of the good stuff instead of the normal 6 at UK prices.

If you are interested please PM me.

If you do decide to ship from the States, please let me know and I'll buy a few gallons of XD50 and contribute towards the Freight costs.

But how about waiting till the exchange rate goes back up to $2 to the

I'm with Hightower and need XD50 which is only $900 for a 55gallon drum - I'd go for 11 gallons of that, and assuming Andy would take 11, you only need 3 more peeps for the XD50 and 3 more for the XD100

Not sure the exchange rate will go back to $2/ though

We could go for 11g of each, but not sure about the divying up - what containers are you thinking of?
