Originally posted by Spector: Fumotos are all mail order, I don't know of any retail outlet where you can purchase them so I assume they would ship anywhere in the world.

This is why I don't like mail ordering stuff from the US very often, unless it's something I absolutely must have and cannot get in Canada (such as when I ordered Auto-rx last year-but that $40US order turned into close to $80 CDN by the time I got it)
Originally posted by OneQuartLow: Patman, I see $33.40 (xe.com rate) + 5 shipping according to their priority mail rate. I've only been on the sending end of international product shipments. Does a little tax guy follow the mailman around?
quote:I didn't even think to try them out. Although it's too late now, I have the Fram units already. If they don't work out, then I'll look for the Fumoto's, but until then there is no sense in me spending more money. I'm broke enough as it is.
Originally posted by Tommy: Patman, Just about every highway truck and logging truck in this neck of the woods has a Fumoto - a truck dealer here stocks them. Have you tried at any truck dealers where you are?
