Anyone know where to get a good deal on Yamaha Ring Free. I am currently paying 49.95
for a 32oz bottle at Ed's Marine. I know there has to be a better price out there somewhere. Even in gallon size if it is cheaper by volume.
When I buy RingFree, once a year, I also buy other parts. Impellers, fuel filters, plugs, thermostat gaskets etc. I generally know what I need, and if I don't, Andy does. Imagine a parts counter guy who knows everything about your engine. He publishes maintenance intervals, how-tos with pictures. All that adds value for me.
Then it all shows up at my door 2 days later. No tax generally covers the shipping. And the prices are normal.
Like others I also use Andy @Shipyard. Just got a couple of cases of Yamalube from him. BUT.....He couldn't beat $132.00 per case of 12oz. bottles (12 bottles), from Quimby's Marine in Easton. Grab it while it lasts,thats almost his cost!!!! :thumbup:
For those of you who work in DC, I have another alternative. Today at lunch, I walked to the Washington Marina store, next to the seafood barges at Maine Ave. I compared the Internet price for Ringfree from Shipyard Island Marine to the Washington Marina price. For the 12-oz size, SIM easily won ($14.69 to over $17.00). However, the price on the 32-oz size was identical at $36.24. Although I paid DC tax of $2.08, I paid nothing for shipping. A 32-oz bottle should last me most of the year. :thumbup:
Although I forgot to ask today, I know that last year Washington Marina was still bulk-selling Yamalube into the buyer's 1-gallon jugs at a very reasonable price.
I use Andy at SIM also, the guy is great. I bought a impellor from him last year and had some trouble installing it. He was right there for me. We figured everything out via e-mail. I don't mind paying the shipping, knowing i have someone who will not rip me off and who knows about my 225 yamaha.
