Default Ordering Fuel from Amain

Hey,

How exactly do you go about ordering fuel from Amain Hobbies? Is it as simple as any other order or is there more to it. I would like to try a different fuel and we don't have it in my area. I will be shipping to Canada so am I able to ship fuel across the boarder?

Thanks

After looking at it, Amain doesn't seem to give a shipping option to ship the fuel. So I assume you can't ship fuel to Canada through Amain. But if anyone still has some info that would be great.

hazmat and duties will KILL you as in $$$ wise....Not worth it unless your bringing over a pallet and have most of the fuel already sold and or a supply to fill.

also to add to it MFG's have to label our bottles differently to get them through custom's....special MSDS labels and stupid stuff like that.

I know you're in Canada, but for anyone in the US it's just like any other order except you're limited to ground shipping. In Canada I'm not sure.

If you order quarts then there is no hazmat. If you order gallons then its about $22/ case for hazmat.
