Is anyone able to give me a rough idea of the price of a 200litre drum of diesel. Recently lost it in a big shed fire and have no idea what it was worth.
Thanks

Multiply by, say 1.4 and add, say $20 for the drum. $300 sounds good.

Jeez Leonora, you had me worried for a sec ;-)
**Grabs calculator**
200L at $1.40 per L, plus $20 deposit on the drum. Unless the deposit has gone up?

Alternatively, we could wait until Friday when the price should be $1.50/L......

CRIKEY!

Oops. "Oil" is hidden in the title bar. I read "Diesel", as in "fuel" from the text line.

Disregard......

he knew what he meant....the rest of us didnt...hehehe

if the oil is old...its worth zilch.....
oil expands and contracts with ambient temperature.....the caps although supposed to be leakproof will alow a little pressure to escape when hot...when it contracts (cold) it its a little air in......together with a little moisture.

Oil has a high infinity for moisture so it is aborbed....then the whole process is repeated and eventualy the oil has become saturated with moisture....if its really bad one will see moisture in the bottom of container.

If the drum is exposed to the elements: when the drum contracts during wet weather it will suck in moisture....

Leonora, if you want a price on 200 lt of diesel oil, somewhere between $550-$700
Without knowing the type of oil, it's a bit hard to give anything better. Rus.

maybe I will today, I was sitting at the computer late at night and it's unlikely anyone would have answered the phone then.

Just to clarify for everyone, it was diesel oil price I was after, as I go back through the thread I see words are left out now and then, I know it was late but I'm sure I typed whole sentences!!!

Leonora,

Bought 2 drums from BP Cloncurry, 12 months ago, $3.65/Litre. Bought 2 more the other day, can't find the later price.

Hooroo...
