Oil
« on: 17 May 2018, 10:03:36 »

Just picked up 20L 5w-30  (ford spec for the Mondy) from local VX stealer. 40 +VAT, not TC but mates rate. Don't know how that compares. :-\

PS Also, after KW's tip, picked up two taps to fit the 20L drums, very handy at a couple of quid each. :y

I paid 50ish plus vat for mine, though might not be same spec as yours.

Those taps, fit with 20l drum upright, then gently tilt to check for leaks, as invariably they do.  I tend to immediately decant into a couple of 5l cans in one hit, and position it so both the main flow, and the leak, flow into same funnel into same can...
