TC-W3 2-stroke oil

I need some more standard TC-W3 two-stroke oil for a 1990 suzuki outboard.

Was using Morris Aquamax but wonder where the most economical (cheap) source is.

Are 5l really going to cost 40+ delivered

Here in the USA I can get a US gallon for $14.00 plus sales tax. No shipping as the local West Marine stocks it. Keep looking for another store that stocks it locally, as the shipping is probably a large part of the costs.

I sell quite a bit online and the weight of it makes it expensive to ship. It's more economical to buy 10 litres at a time as it only adds about 3-4 to the postage.

my local marina shop sells 4l of quicksilver premium for 32,40p, as I bought some a couple of weeks ago.

I came across Exol last summer - and it was so relatively cheap (and comes in a plain drum with a very home-made looking label stuck on it) I checked it out by ringing the manufacturer - spoke to a very helpful guy there who assured me it was proper stuff and in fact emailed me the technical data sheet. I'm trying to attach it ... let's see if it worls

But like the aptly named Courageous, so far so good!

Try a local boat jumble - picked up some Shell Marine 2 stroke oil for a song a short while ago.
