Aout 23 for a US gallon, that is about four litres, I think.

I bought 2 cans of XD100 yesterday which are only 4Ltrs.. I paid 34+VAT each. 80 total. An Etec progged to run on XD100 is supposed to use less thus off-setting the extra cost over the XD50.

thats not a bad price , they are certainly correct about not using much my 90 is very frugal with the stuff . In fact i reckon its using less oil than a 4 stroke taking regular oil changes into account .

Good, Mine yomped the 1st can full. Etecs double the oil input for the 1st 2 hours of running in. We'll see how much it uses from now on. She's on 13.8hrs now.

I remember being behind it (but only just), having my lungs checked next week, at least you can hear my Opti coming

That's rich coming from an Opti owner!! You and Brad were communicating via smoke signal.

She's now had a 35mm jack, so look out!
