XD-100 Group Buy

Any E-tec owners out there interested in joining an "oil consortium"... drop me a PM if you are, prices could be sub 30 a gallon (thanks Willk) if we are clever about it.

Chris.

I an still trying to work out the best way to do this, I can get a 55 gallon drum for 1,675 so 30.46 per us gallon. Problem is distribution....

I was thinking of 20 litre containers so aimed more at people that use a fair amount....

Any suggestions would be welcome :-)

Shop | RIB Stuff
Yep Ribstuff is run by Quinquari. If I were buying a few gallons that's where I would go.... with shipping on 6 gallons it comes in at about 44.

However the purpose of this thread is to try and get that price down to a more palatable 30....

The main issue is distribution. If anyone can suggest a way of doing this then let me know. I am waiting to confirm prices with UKMAIL and UPS who both carry liquids and more importantly will still insure the packages against damage or loss. Its looking like it will be between 20 and 30 for a 20 litre container. so the price could be as low as 35 per Gallon including the container and shipping.

That's where I ordered my XD100 from Ribstuff with VAT + delivery worked out at about 40 a tub the guy told me he couldn't do it for less than 38 a tub no matter how much I bought I did think about buying the 45gallon drum but didn't work out that much cheaper by the time you've messed about filling containers then sending them off to others I thought 40 was a good price

+1 but suppose depends how much you use, and how much "spare" cash you want to tie up, how much you value your time messing around, chasing strangers for money - to save few pounds.

Different if everybody was local or you knew everybody ..,
