Cheers 250kts, I never thought of that. What a great idea. The wheelie bin don't work with my motor, it wont fit because of the cavitation plate.

Think allot depends on the water pressure coming out of your tap.
A tub is best but a pain trying to get rid of the 2 stroke infested water.
I got a huge tub of MikeCC, maybe ask him where he got it from?

Yep. That's what I use - though it's only just deep enough.

Aren't you meant to just tip it down the road?
Not sure how good it is for your garden?
I know my youngest brother fell in a barrel head first that I'd ran an engine in and he came out with a nice coating of oil on him!
