Ok, so now it is, but I can't get it to give me shipping options.

Oh it works OK NOS, just in a Geological Timeframe...

Then it adds shipping and then it adds VAT.

I'm not going to be friends with it

Finally got it to work.

After all that, it's still a lot cheaper for me to buy it by the 25 litre drum.

Can I ask a kind of related oil question - is there really a risk of 'gelling' and blockages (as engine manual warns) if different oil brands are mixed in the same tank?

Agreed that lot is cheap, and so I throw this in as an observation.

I got the best part of a 1L tub of "nobrand" TCW3 when I got the rib. It worked OK, but when I swapped to Yamlube I felt the engine did run & start percepively better.

I always felt Yamlube was less "gloopy" and seemed to keep the engine running sweeter & cleaner than even other branded "gloopy TCW3 oils like Quicksilver)

It may of course be the subliminal advertising of a known brand playing with my brain, but I have heard three other people who don't run Yam engines (Suz, Tohatsu & Johnson) say that they reckon Yamlube makes a perceptible difference.
