Default ordering cases of gas

How can I go about ordering cases of gas from trinity or byron's. I dont want to have to pay hobby shop prices for a 1 or 2 cases if I can get it cheaper some other way. Any info is appreciated.

you can order from amain but the last time I did the math I was about the same price to order and pay shipping as it is to pay the extra at the hobby shop and you are giving them your support just my opinon.

Cool

You can buy 12 quarts on Ebay for $81.00 - they advertise '12 QUARTS - High Performance 20 % Nitro Fuel for RC CAR' + $18.67 shipping, this comes to about $33.22 per gal. Seems high to me. Hobbytown has their own brand of 20% Nitro Fuel - I pay $22.99 per gal and it's great quality fuel. I haven't purchased case qty but if you have a Hobbytown near you, ask them.

You can`t . Must be a hobby shop and even then most want a 8 case minimum order .

Have you asked your hobby shop for a deal if you buy a case or two ? Usually they will when you buy in bulk especially if you are a regular customer .

EBMODS.COM he has killer fuel and ships it only in quarts a few different blends, 6,12, and 16 quarts. Its like 12-$15 for shipping. If you get the 16 quarts 30% race its like $31 a gallon I couldnt find a better price anywhere.

It's "Fuel" by the way, not "gas".....

my LHS is selling 1 gallons @ about 40 dollars. If you buy cases on line from amain it comes to about $135 plus shipping for 4 gallons. Thats about $33 dollars a gallon.

Byrons fuel.


p.s. ya LHS or distributors are required to buy a certian amout of cases, that is why they jack up the prices

My friend tried with Byron's to set up an account. They wanted pictures of the inside and outside. Its 4 of us and we was going to order 8 cases for the season. I will ask the local hobby shop to see what kind of deal they will give us. Right now they sell 30% Trinity for 40 a gallon.

Yeah i know. Thats why i am trying to find a way to get a deal for me and my friends. I am willing to drive to anywhere in the Tri-State area to pick up a few cases. If the LHS is rapping us fuel now they might rape us for cases also. If anyone know where to get cases of fuel for a deal let me know. 30% please.
