RAD runs a community bulk oil buying scheme.  We order oil for our members once a month.  In January we ordered over 90,000 litres and achieved the price of 31.25 ppl (plus 5% VAT).  Next order deadline is 12 noon on 17th February for delivery on or before 6th March.  It only costs £20 per year to join.
