My local bookers sells KTC for £14.99 for 20litre tubs :)

Local Asda only had 3 in stock so i grabbed 2 but my try again tomorrow and the others locally as rapeseed is much better in the colder so I will buy as much as i can and fill up my drum with it as im in no rush to use it :)

Thanks for the heads up

Mike, Tim's post that you responded to was made back in 2011, when he still had his Xantias which his signature show as sold :)
These things happen when someone (in this case XMX) resurrects an ancient thread!

Well bookers KTC has gone up to £15.49 and i've been going round some local asda's. One locally has the gual to charge you for parking! WTF so skipped that one and tried another for a load of the stuff but they tend to only get so much in every night. I think the price is cheap to shift them as the competition on them expires soon.

Tesco's currently have the 5L bottles of Veg or sunflower oil at 2 for £9, so working out tat 90p/L is normally 2 for £10, i generally pick up a couple a fortnight,
we dont have any of the large brand wholesalers down here except for Bookers,

Bookers is good so worth registering and another 15p/l cheaper :)

I just got 24 bottles from asda but they have now imposed a limit so I think anything more than 30 would trip you up.

The rapeseed and sunflower is best to go for but you can use the soya if you mix in some diesel with it if you have issues with thickness at lower temps which I usually do below 10'c but only about 5-10% so about £5 at the pumps :)
