Brian, thought you might have bought some 4L cans with your XS-550 from Barnet. It only cost us 18.50 per can so we bought 18 of them!! Thats probably not the best price in the UK but it was very convenient for us and a hell of a lot better than Irish prices.

Scotty, the only problem with getting Opti oil from the UK is that it generally ships as hazardous goods and can work out quite expensive once shipped over.

I think we pay around 15-16 a can over here but then there's VAT to take into consideration.......having said that, not even sure if VATs applicable!?

I thought ours was pricey but looking at the other posts we're doing quite well!!!

Not sure if you can get bigger sized cans for cheaper and decant into a smaller one????
