Default If you procrastinate, It's gonna cost you. XPD went up in price....

I could have sworn that as I checked the price on Opti-Lube XPD was 32.95 per gallon and 12,95 fr the 16oz bottle....

Now they are $42.95 and 15.95.

I guess that's what AI get for procrastinating..

But atleast I got some on the way...

Fuel Economy: 09 MB R320 Bluetec and too many ALH Beetles!

The reason for the price increase is that a certain member here has a been pumping up Opti-lube as the wonder additive and therefore sales and demand have increased and so has the price. Just like Wall Street. ''Get long,get loud''


dweisel isn't diesel anymore!

Good thing B5 prices near me haven't moved in a month and half.

Maybe opti lube expanded their production line so they can provide enough of their whundor product to local resellers.

Come on Dweisel...cut me some slack...my kids all need new shoes

In all honestly, I am totally flattered that you would think that I, securityguy, am solely responsible for the price increase all because of me and my touting about how great this product is but I seriously doubt that I can take any credit for it

I guess if I use that logic...we are seeing more HPFP issues because a certain member is "pumping up" the microscopic particles that may/can be sceen when changing the fuel filter.........
