oil prices/Tohatsu TLDI

Noticed today on the mailspeed marine website that the price of their outboard oil has gone up by nearly double!
Persume this has something to do with the global price of oil in general.
Does anybody use any cheaper oil for their outboards or have found a cheap internet supplier?Currently use a tohatsu tldi 90 and the oil is bloody expensive.Any suggestions on any oils i could try instead?

Don't know how much it is these days but when I bought some it was a lot cheaper.

What you need is the MP3 sports semi synthetic. They also deal with the public I believe.

the rockoil rep is a member of wbac mark! Nikki was talking to him a coupla days ago re the oil for the gearboxes in her boat. Turned out she had taught his level 2 course.
what spec oil is it that you need as we have some unopened 2 stroke here but may not be right spec for you.
