What we need is for those of us with Bosch pumps to form an alliance, perhaps those of us with storage facilities could help store the oil for a nominal charge (payment in SVO perhaps) whilst the rest of the Bosch group could organise themselves into Tesco raiding parties. Perhaps leaving sufficient oil on Tesco shelves for the Lucas pump alliance to use for cooking purposes. :twisted:

To suggest we're collectively depriving the rest of the country of cooking oil is disingenious to say the least. Laughable in fact. :lol:

I just bought another 90L for £30 from a different branch and although I admit I did clear the shelf of 3L veg oil, I still left all the 3L bottles of sunflower oil, both kinds of 1L bottles, the drums of KTC and other non-discounted brands so my conscience is clear.

Before I filled my trolley I asked if there was a limit and was surprised to be categorically told no, they have done away with their bulk buying limit policy a fair time ago. I was also told that my online order should have already been reserved.

Both of those statements contradict what I was told on Saturday so I guess it's down to the discretion of the store though I still hold the view the manager at Bournemouth is a nasty piece of work.

within about 20seconds of getting in the car at my house or work i pass a myriad of fields full of rapeseed so i can only hope the price goes down even further with more farmers producing as there are tonnes produced that don't even make food grade that go to waste :(

Tell me about it :evil: Evil bloody stuff at this time of the year. Smells worse than gearbox oil and that's saying something...

And don't get me started on what it does for those subject to hay fever...

Great idea to have a bulk pump for the stuff in your local TesAsBerys :D

Look for the dome shape on top of the pump. You might also see Bosch cast into the body somewhere, but the dome is the giveaway.

First pic in the first post Tom. http://www.frenchcarforum.co.uk/forum/v ... hp?t=28590 though they are made without the LDA (or dome or ufo or flying saucer etc etc) for non-turbo engine.

You know, I went to Tesco yesterday to do the weeks' shopping and do you know what I forgot to get?


Yep,


That's right...
