Buying Bulk Outboard Motor Oil Saves You Money

domo-online blog 5 11-17-14I was never one to buy anything in bulk. If I needed a pair of socks, I bought a pair of socks. If I needed toilet paper, I bought only what I needed. I didn’t mind trips to the store, and I didn’t like to spend more money than I had to at any given time. That was until my girlfriend turned me on to the advantages of buying in bulk.

My girlfriend is the type of woman who shops exclusively at Costco. One day, after I complained about a grocery bill, she sat me down and showed me the amount of money we were actually saving buying in bulk. I wondered if I could save money buying bulk outboard motor oil for my boat as well. Sure enough, I did end up saving a bundle and even split the cost with a friend. Now I’m truly a bargain shopper!

Buying Bulk Mercury Optimax Oil to Survive the Winter

domo-online blog 3 11-17-14Living on an island in the Inside Passageway of Alaska, winters can be tough. The days grow very cold and the sea gets rough. Sun becomes a distant memory by the time the end of fall rolls around, and no one wants to go out more than necessary. It’s hibernating season for Alaskans and during this time, it’s a good idea to stock up on necessary supplies in case of emergencies.

I always buy bulk Mercury Optimax oil to get me through the winter. Because I live on an island, my main mode of transportation is my boat. It’s extremely important to me to keep my boat running clean and healthy so it can perform throughout the dreary season and beyond. That’s why I stock up well in advance of winter. Living in such a dark, cold and remote location as I do, it’s always better to be safe than sorry when stocking your supplies.

Some Bulk Motor Oil is Sure to Last Me Longer than Individual Gallons

domo online blog 5 10-20-14When I was first buying oil for my boats, I was buying it a little at a time from a local store. It felt like I always was in that boating shop looking for the oil that I needed to take my boat out the next day. I just went through oil so quickly that it felt almost silly to continue buying it in such small containers all of the time. I felt like it was getting too expensive.

That’s when I decided to go online to find large amounts of boat motor oil for sale at more reasonable prices. I was able to purchase bulk motor oil without having to worry about paying too much for my oil. This made it so that I always had the oil that I needed and I never had to run to the store to try and get more oil for my boat when I suddenly ran out of it.

A Mercury Oil 55 Gallon Drum Supplies My Brother’s Boat Rental Shop

domo online blog 1 10-13-14When my brother said that he was going to open up a boat rental shop over by the marina to rent boats to the people that wanted to go out on the water, the rest of us thought that it was a great idea. Of course, most of the rentals took place during the summertime, but my brother isn’t too concerned about the off season. He was able to at least cover his costs.

In order to run the boat rental shop, he had to buy a couple of good boats that he could easily rent out, get some insurance, and always have a Mercury oil 55 gallon drum hanging around so that he could keep his boats running great. Since he already knew a lot about boat maintenance, he was able to do most of his own. This really helped him to cut down on costs.

Cutting Down Cost with Bulk Outboard Motor Oil

domo online blog 1 9-22-14At the beginning of the summer, one of my friends was sure that they wouldn’t be able to afford to run their boat at all this year. He had just lost his job, so spending money on oil for his boat and gas to run it seemed a little wasteful. He had money saved up to make sure he could survive through a period of time without a job, but it didn’t leave much money for recreation.

With how stressed out he was about getting a job, he eventually decided that he needed to go out on his boat to relieve some of the stress. To save money on taking the boat out he bought some bulk outboard motor oil. He was able to take the boat out several times without spending a lot of money. He soon was able to find a new job so money wasn’t such a huge issue.

Bulk Mercury Optimax Oil is a Cheaper Way to Buy

domo online blog 3 9-16-14When my brother first bought his OptiMax outboard engine for his boat, he was excited to use it. He had first fallen in love with this type of engine when he saw it on one of his friends’ boats and enjoyed the way that it performed. He had then saved up the money to buy one to replace the older engine that had come with the boat that he had bought years before.

After investing so much time and effort into getting this engine, he wants to be sure that he is getting the most out of it. This means filling it with Mercury Optimax oil which can be expensive when he buys it at our local sporting goods store. He has recently started purchasing bulk Mercury Optimax oil because it is so much cheaper to buy it in large quantities.

Doing the Math When it Comes to Bulk Motor Oil

domo online blog 1 8-25-14When I first bought my boat, it was very important to me that I run the boat as cheaply and efficiently as possible. I was really excited about the possibility of buying oil for my boat in bulk rather than buying it a quart at a time from the marina. At the time, my friends all told me that it wasn’t worth it because I wasn’t out on the water enough to make it so I wouldn’t waste the oil.

Initially they were right about my oil use. I couldn’t use bulk motor oil fast enough to make it actually worth buying in large drums. More recently I have been able to go out on my boat a lot more often so that during the summer I am out almost every single weekend. This makes it so that it is actually worth buying the bulk oil because I’ll be able to use it all.

Joking About Buying a Mercury Oil 55 Gallon Drum

During the summer, my brother takes his boat out on the water just about every single weekend. When he runs the boat this often, it continues to work really well for a long time because it likes being used so much. It also ends up costing my brother a lot of money since it needs more oil and gasoline to continue running as my brother uses it on the water.

After looking over the cost and the consumption of the boat’s oil, my brother jokingly said that he ought to have just purchased a Mercury oil 55 gallon drum at the beginning of the summer. I know that he meant it as a joke when he said it, but after he started looking up the price of these drums he started considering it as a real option. Maybe he’ll buy one next year.

Ordering a New Supply of Bulk Motor Oil

domo online blog 1 6-23-14My uncle works at a shop near the marina that specializes in boat repair. Now that the weather has gotten a lot better and people are actually starting to take their boats out for the season, the shop has been really busy fixing broken motor parts and getting boats back out on the water. All week there is a steady stream of customers waiting to have their boats fixed.

With the Fourth of July coming up, even more people have been in for regular maintenance on their boats. My uncle had to order some more bulk motor oil because so many people had bought up his supply. The rush should die down in a couple of weeks, but my uncle is currently working so much that he barely has time to take his own boat out on the water.

What to do When a Mercury Oil 55 Gallon Drum Becomes Empty

domo online blog 2 6-9-14For the past couple of years my father and his friends have used a large oil drum to supply themselves with all of the boat oil that they needed. After adding the oil to their boats for the summer season, they became aware that they were at last in possession of an empty 55 gallon drum. Initially, there was a lot of debate about what to do with the empty drum.

An empty Mercury oil 55 gallon drum was not nearly as useful as a full one, so all of the men immediately claimed that disposing of the drum was not their problem. My father looked up some resources online for how to dispose of oil drums, but all of it seemed fairly complicated. Eventually, my father and his friends decided that the best thing to do with the drum was to see if they could refill it
