Thanks Dirk - I saw that post when I did a search the other day, but wondered what current pricing was like, as that goes back a little while.

What about bulk purchase? What sort of s would be charged for say 25 litre drums of the stuff?

dfi oil

last year i was paying around 22-23 quid for 4 litres

now the price has jumped up to around 31-32 quid

i tried the number below given by dirk and he said the price is 31.89 and he cant do for the price stated

has anyone else found this to be the situation as well or have you found places doing a bit of a deal currently?

pacer marine have it at 29.99

Hi
My local stockist does it for the following

31.50 per grey bottle

82.35 per box of three bottles (upto 3 boxes)

77.77 per box if you take 4 boxes or more (if anyone is interested in a bulk buy)

If we could get a 205 L drum at the right price I could handle it and split it up, we'd just need the containers to put it in

i know a few folks would be interested in the 205 l drum split up, i would be happy with 25 or 50 litres

i know down hill dai would be the same

mollers was wanting to split a drum also

i am presuming the oil would be ok to store in jerry cans or plastic fuel cans and does not go off too quickly?!?

James,
If you could get a drum at the right price, I'd be more than happy to chip-in for 25-50 litres of it.

Yup, it is cheap. However shipping cost is stupid. Just paid $40.00 to ship a 1 lb. package to another member.
Why not contact West marine and see what they can do.
Sorry to Pee you off even more: I just checked the receipt it was only $13.99 per US gallon, however if you want to buy a jug marked DFI it is another 5 bucks.

I thought that the price differences on Brunswick products between here and the US had been adjusted. I'd heard that they were losing so much business to non-genuine part sales that they'd had to act. So, it looks as if we're still being ripped off, How the hell can DFI oil be 4 times more expensive here?
