Sticking this in here as quite want to be rid of the stuff now, it takes up too much space!

I've got about 4 25-litre drums of Shellsol D60 (Now called HCS D60) available.

If anyone wants to buy some - i'm selling them at 50 each. I can't deliver them, so it's pick up only (Guildford/Epsom area...).

If you wanted to buy one straight from the supplier they're 55 each, plus 30 delivery - and they'll only deliver to registered business addresses or accept pick-up in a certified van. I of course flout all these safety regulations to make a quick buck

Full MSDS available (of course) - short story, it burns cooler and longer than paraffin, just as bright, much less smoke (takes a couple of burns to burnout any residual paraffin left on the wicks for best effect) and very low odour (not odour-less, but close - We were performing in small-ish room, twice a night, 6 nights a week - and there was never any smell after a burn, important as they were dining in the same room).
It's also classed as a combustible, not a flammable liquid so you can take it on planes if you were so inclined.

Just to state the obvious, they're 25-litre plastic drums. That's a lot of fuel. We did 53 gigs and used about 10 in total, and that was including 1-hour free-spinning and 2/3 5-minute burns each night. So they last a fair old-while

First come, first served smile

Near-ish, near enough certainly.

I'm on holiday until the 2nd Sept, but you know you're more than welcome to stay for a couple of nights at our new place smile
