I've been to halfrauds today, to pick up a few bits and also to obtain some prices,
I wanted to get a 1ltr bottle of Castro Edge 5W-30 then I saw the price :o
24.95 euro for 1litre
59.99 euro for 4litre

Last time I purchased Castro edge was back in 2008 and from halfrauds then too, but back then I'm sure 5 litres cost under 50 euro
Are we secretly paying for the BP disaster of 2010 ?

Anyways I didn't purchase the Castro edge from halfrauds in the end,
I just bought a can of wynnes engine flush for a very reasonable 5.64euro

I then walked out of halfords and in to woodies DIY, (no relation) lol
There a chain store much like B&Q
Anyways I purchased a 1 litre bottle of Castro Edge for a more reasonable but still expensive 21.49 euro

Have something to contribute?

Excellent thanks Kevin,
As long as the postage is cheap I should save on it,
Sickening thing is... I didn't need it today mate I don't need it until the 17th and may not even need it then,
I just purchased 1 litre encase the car is low when I collect it,
I could have bought this one online and waited

Found an online company in Ireland selling it cheap so shipping will be cheaper,
Thanks,
I used to buy all parts except oil and coolant online,
Times at changing going in the online direction.
