Three positives MS200 reports, to help dispel the myths. Keep them coming.

 

The RRP inc vat is currently £18.16 per 5litre can (2 stroke) ex shop. (UK price)

It's Tax deductible and cleaner for workers and public if a great plume of blues smoke pops in the air when someone not using aspen is with you, the smell of 2 stroke after using Aspen is mind blowingly bad.

I now use Aspen in every machine, including lawn tractors, that pass through my workshop. This costs me a LOT of money, even at trade price, but the workshop is a much more pleasant place to work.

 

My chest problems have dissapeared, and my wife's headaches have reduced (her office is within the unit and only a few yards from the workshop door.)

 

And, last year we had none of the normal few 'comebacks' from serviced machines not starting well a few months after service.

 

Switching to Aspen is one of the best changes I have ever made, and our counter sales of Aspen are phenominal.

I buy it direct from aspen, I get 30 litre and it costs £220.12 delivered.

That's £7.33 a litre. You must have mis quoted?

 

If RRP for 5l is £18.16, then it's £3.63 a litre and for the health benefits I could possibly justify it.

I presume 12 delivered means 12x5L=60L?

Which makes £3.67/L delivered.

That is with delivery at £20 plus vat. It isn't cheap but its better for the saws and I don't have to breath that awfull 2 stroke smell.

Hodge, can you please clarify exactly how many litres you buy at a time? Any for how much? Can't make head or tail of your first post.

 

I can't still be drunk?!

I get 30 litres at a time, that's 12 x 5 litre cans and it costs me £163.44 net, then there is £20 net for carriage, then £36.68 vat so a total for me to pay is £220.12. As I'm not vat reg then that's what I pay.
