€0.55 a litre with Top Oil today for about 650l

Not sure if that's good? Checking the last order from late last year it's down about €0.13 a litre

€380 for 1000 liters with J&P derrynose but expect it to drop further in next week.
DERV white isn't dropping at nearly the same rate.

Christ, I remember paying nearly a grand for 1000 litres back in 2010ish. Having to collect the share from housemates after we ran out and waiting 5 cold days before we could get it all the money together.

If you're collecting oil from the likes of J&P derrynose do you need a licence/permit to tow a 1000 litres of oil behind you?

Surely you need a license, but honestly i don't know.

Definitely not if it's in a proper fuel bowser.

In drums, you could be facing a real problem if you crashed alright. I often carry 10 drums in the back of an SUV or purchase 3-4 drums of paraffin and carry them. Definitely not against my insurance policy anyway.

Hardly a bomb. Kerosene doesn't explode. Won't even light if you drop a match onto it.

Won't catch fire by itself but in the event of a crash towing it if there's a heat source then it's very flammable.
Give me the choice 1000l water or kerosene to tow and I'll let you take the kerosene.
