I bought a drum last year! It worked out OK for us as we had the oil don tap literally . try and keep the Drum indoors if you can cos the oild doesn't like the cold and can gain hydroscopic tendancies. It can absorb some water as well

Here it comes again, I don't stand a chance

Still have 14 bottles left to get through I'm afraid so I'm well stocked up for next season. I was quite surprised at how little oil the Opti's burn after you've run them in through the over-oiling period.

if anyone has found better prices let me know!!
the sprk plug pricing saves me 120 per service (2 engines)

I'm looking at going to us as they sell for only $9.80 in states!!!!!

Where did you get the plugs from?
Sounds like a good deal.
