    I pay $1.35 per litre off pump, which is normally how I buy it on an as needs basis, as my other half doesnt like the idea of having 200l of the stuff sitting around.
    If I buy it in a 205l drum it costs $260 plus $25 for the drum, which is refundable upon return in reasonable condition.

    Excellent price per litre ($1.35) for the "off pump" methanol, almost as cheap as the 200 litre drum price per litre ($1.30 without drum deposit).

    I've moved this thread and renamed it with a more appropriate title.

    Try contacting Dillyman. He's up your way. I emailed you about Rechochem, but with transportation costs from Brisbane it couoldn't be any better than what you have.

    Well Performance Wholesale(Logan) has just put there price up for 20l if you supply a drum to $3.44/l a 30% rise in one month. A 205l can still be got for $260'ish ($1.27/l). If you can handle that much at a time.
