Default Yamalube in Houston

Guys,

Where have you found the cheapest place to purchase Yamalube in and around the Houston/Galveston area? At what price?

If you have the space and can use the quantity, you'll save big bucks by buying a barrel with a buddy. Install a spigot and lay it in a "cradle" so you can fill your jugs from it. I just bought 55 gals for $575.

an easier way than the cradle is to buy a barrell pump from Grainger for about $60. Fits right in the top, hand crank fills your jugs.

Screamer-

We are buying it at Anderson Marine for somewhere between bulk and by the gallon price. They buy bulk, you buy containers and then go back and refill them as you need. I can call my partner and get you our exact price if you would like, but there is a decent savings. Anderson is out off of 45 south.

Combine this with getting your fuel road tax back and we all may actually be able to fill the tanks all the way up.

Can you find out what you pay from Red Wing? I would buy in the 55Gal drum if I could get the price right. Anybody in Houston bought a drum?

By the way John, funny you say Grainger. That's where I work here in Houston. Pumps and cradles "no problem".

Screamer-

I think I sent you a message to your tackle box, let me know if it worked. I am a little new to this whole deal.
