How long before your 55 gallon drum of oil goes bad?

I use Evinrude XD50 in my 200 hp Evinrude E-Tec engine and am thinking about buying a 55 gallon bulk oil drum. I can save about $10 a gallon compared to the counter price at the store, but I wonder how fast I must use it before it goods bad…or does it ever go bad?

My two fishing buddies and I are sharing the drum and should finish it off in about a year.

Does anybody know the answers? Thanks, Bill

Toyota Nixes Outboard Motors on Pickups

ToybotaCiting size, fuel efficiency challenges and California emissions standards Toyota has decided not to move forward with putting outboard motors on their newest line of pickups. This came as quite a disappointment to many industry specialists who were looking forward to helping owners of the new vehicles stay on the road. From outboard motor oil requirements to gasoline, even repair and maintenance needs, the new vehicle was destined to provide jobs in mechanical repair and gas stations the world over.

Industry professionals are not thrilled but they are also unsurprised. “Why would you put an outboard motor on a pickup truck?” seems to be the question on most people’s lips. And a good question it is. There’s no real apparent advantage in terms of performance, towing capacity or versatility to be gained from attaching an outboard motor to the tailgate of a remarkably durable truck. Still, though, many are shaking their heads in amazement, “It sure does look cool.”

Recycle Oil

Recycle Motor OilWhen it’s time to replace your 2 cycle motor oil make sure you dispose of your used oil properly. Despite attempts to clean up landfills and other dumping areas motor oil continues to be a persistent problem and threat to the environment around the world. When we don’t follow proper disposal techniques we endanger wildlife and can even directly impact the helth and growth of fish in large numbers.

Simply put, if you don’t recycle your oil a lot of bad things can happen and you’ll end up with no fish, or no clean water for boating. The snowball effect from improper disposal of your oil can be catastrophic to wetlands and endangered species no matter where you live. That’s why I support and practice motor oil recycling religiously. I want my children, grandchildren and their children to be able to enjoy the same relationship with nature and wildlife that I do.

Outboard Senseless

Ego Alley

I’ve often noticed that on the larger search engines and news sites that it can be really tough to track down boating news or maritime reports. You’d think with an entire planet covered with water it might be a little more important to folks to stay on top of goings-on in the marine and maritime industries. Anyway, before I get off on a tangent let me point out a great site I’ve found that can help remedy your need for nautical news. You can find it at This site’s got everything. There’s boating business news to keep you up-to-date on any changes in your favorite company’s business as well as developments that may affect the prices of boats, boat motor oil and other related supplies.

They’ve even got up-to-the-minute boating news from all over the country for marine enthusiasts just like you and me. The only thing I haven’t found is weather and tide reports, so you’re still on your own until we find a good reliable service to endorse. Until then, don’t fall out of the loop!

Barrel too much? Buy by the case and save anyway.

Buy by the caseWell, we can see that not everyone is going to have the demand for a 55 gallon oil drum. In case you haven’t got the storage area, or you just won’t ever use that much you can still save big bucks buying bulk at Domo-Online. At Domo-Online our outboard engine oil case prices lack the traditional markup that retail supplies often carry. Logisitcally speaking, if you have a small boat or nowhere to keep a 55-gallon drum it still doesn’t make sense to pay exorbitant prices at overpriced marine supply stores.

Experience proves that when you buy in bulk you save big, so why keep throwing money down the drain?

At that price it’s a steal and you can even save yourself some time and money by picking one up with your first barrel purchase.

They work like a charm and fit the barrel perfectly. With this convenient tool you can safeguard your oil and make dispensing it a whole lot cleaner. So step over and have a look and let me know what you think!

If you’ve got a Yamaha…

175-p004.jpg2 Cycle outboard motor then this is the place for you. When you buy in bulk you’ll save over ten dollars per gallon on the retail price. That’s ten dollars less for each gallon! And this is some tough stuff too. No need to worry about engine performance and wear when it’s a Yamaha using Yamalube. Specially designed for the rugged boater this is one synthetic oil that’ll never let you down.

Buy bulk and save big.

1.gifSince a 55-gallon drum of oil doesn’t have to be bottled I saved big bucks. Since we didn’t take the time and expense of plastic bottling we enjoyed affordable motor oil. The best part is it’s ultra-convenient. I asked a few of the guys around the marina if they’d be interested in buying for big discounts. Naturally, they said yes! So now I avoid overpaying at local boating and marine stores. They can really gouge you for specialty products like this. But not anymore!

And another advantage, one my daughter really enjoys, is that we’re doing our part for the environment. No more tossing recyclable plastic in the trash because it’s “contaminated” with motor oil. In fact, no more plastic jugs period! I’m saving time, money and the environment in one easy purchase. It doesn’t get any better than this. And with up to 40% savings per gallon there’s really no reason to buy outboard motor oil by the gallon anymore.
