Hey everyone, I was wondering where would you buy a bulk lot of engine oil from (20 litres +) in Sydney. I do high kms plus i change family members oil as well. I'm thinking it would save a few bucks. Do you think I could get a 44 gallon drum thrown on the back of the ute at one of the refineries?
lol @ the 44 gallon drum idea.
I think you'll find you're pretty well limited to 5L quantities.
That's an awesome idea, might look around my self. Wouldn't you be able to go to one of the places that you buy oil from and just ask if they can supply you in bulk for a cheaper price, i'm sure they can do you a deal.
HEARRRY, HEV YU HEARD OF REKALL?
ask your local machanic i will almost bet my weeks they buy it in 44s
the local mechanics an idea. bulk has got to be the way to go, retail prices for stuff is ridiculous. what gets me is the price differences for the same stuff at different places. highway robbery.
Of course you can buy it in bulk, just need to know where to look. I buy my mobil one in 20 litre drums all the time, saves at least $70, meaning i get pretty much 5 litres for free!
I also have the option of getting it in a 44 so it's available no worries. Just go down to your local depot and they'll hook you up. What oil are you looking for?
Hey Juzo, I was thinking of mobil 1 actually. When you say local depot, what you mean? Just a side Q. Is mobil 1 refined in Aus. or imported?
I know Nulon definately sell to consumers in 20L drums. I'd just try ordering through Autobarn/Supercheap etc. Wouldn't surprise me if most oils were available in similar quantities over the counter.

I will sus out a few servos over the next few days, thanks juzo.
when i worked at a couple of machine shops they had 44s of oil from mobilyou could ask a local one if theyll put an extra one on order for you might get it even cheaper buying bulk in bulk, you can also get it in a but plastic tank about the size of an average pallet, we used it to fill a gearbox, im pretty sure that one was from mobil actually
