[CHAT] Engine oil etc



Their site lists a store in Watford. Like a lot of these warehouse type
places not everything there is cheap, but there are some bargains to be
had. If anyone is after a HUGE stainless steel tool cabinet they're
doing one for =A3400 + VAT that's on sale elsewhere for approx =A31400. Take
a mate with you though, they weight over 200Kg.
I didn't notice what other oils they had, but there were others so I'll
have a closer look next time.
They're also selling some smashing rechargeable twin tube fluorescent
lamps, about 2ft tall with Philips tubes, =A36.99 + VAT. Think they're
approx =A330 elsewhere.

So what's COSTCO ? And if its a cheap place to buy gear, is there one
Watford or Guildford for when I am next back in UK ?
Magnatec - even here in Bosnia they advertise it as a semi-synthetic.
Something on the lines that the 'synthetic' part being like 'magnetic'
keeping a film on the bearing shells to reduce warm-up wear. Hence the
name, even little 'ol me can understand that much from the local TV
adverts. ('Boutros Boutros Ghali' et al).
I use the old fashioned Castrol 'TXT Sofitec' fully synthetic, and am
pleased with it. About 80 quid for oil and filter change (MAN) - which
is a
good price here.

Friday/Saturday morning, and running out of places to shovel the damn
stuff to.
