Quicksilver DFI Oil price drop !!!!

I have just paid €40.00 (aprox £33.50) each for a couple of 4l bottles
Last year at the same place I was paying €48.15 (aprox £40.00) each

I was surprised to see a price drop of this size.

The £ - € rate has not changed that much over the last year although the $ has been more variable.

Has the price dropped in the uk? What are other people paying in £ or in €

Interestingly enough a Mercury authorised dealer and service agent only a few 100m from the guy I normally buy from told me he no longer stocked DFI and recommended the Premium Plus which he said they use in their workshops on all the Optis they service and maintain. I know there have been previous threads on DFI v Premium plus but I wasn’t convinced by him so didn’t even enquire as to price so I can’t compare.
