Oz Shellite
« on: September 07, 2004, 05:31:00 AM »
SWIM has just toyed around with the ozzie shellite available at most supermarkets. F*CK OFF the Colemans, F*CK off the 95% Toluene. This stuff is all you need and it only cost $1.76/L :: Seemed to grab practically EVERYTHING. Cant believe SWIM spent $30 on a tin of crud toluene.

100% toluene is easily obtained in oz for ~$50 per 20 lt.thus, i wouldn't bother chasing shellite.

This may seem expensive to you rhod's but compared to seppo land... everything is fuggin epensive over here in oz! ;)

Shellite is pretty much available in every grocery store (and any other store selling metho or turps) and is defiently CHEAP for the consumer end.

Just getting some facts straight  :)

In australia, Colemans Fuel is sold in camping stores (metal squarish tin), Shellite is sold in a bottle, although very much like colemans. White Spirits is sold also under a seperate name.
