    a litre of BP grade VG for $26.50 - pickup melbs

    edit - feel free to read below folks but it seems the supplier gave me some wrong info - i thought it was two litres - turns out its only 1 litre - so all bets are off re this mini co-op....

    hi folks - anyone want to go halvies in some VG produced from vegetable sources, mainly nut oils (coconut oil !) that is kosher, halal and vegetarian approved - BP pharmaceutical grade

    Glycerine Liquid (Vegetable Source) USP/BP - The Melbourne Food Depot, Melbourne, Australia

    it is $33 for a 1.3kg jerry can by weight - i have emailed them to ask how many litres that is and got the following reply - "Due to its viscosity it is measured by weight. There would be approx 2 lts."

    delivery to my place costs $20 with signature - they dont offer pickup

    so if we split the vg and delivery costs down the middle and you pick up from my workplace in east st kilda it will cost us $26.50 each for about a litre

    avf forum member necro kindly sent me a sample of this vg last week to test - it is the vg he uses in all his mixes and i can say that it is great - lots of vapour and great tasting

    any takers?

    if not ill just buy a whole jerry can for myself and pig out....

    I always thought 1kg was 1 litre equal. Thats for water. I would think because VG is more dense its not 2 litres.

    scrap that according to some tables I just looked up 1 L = 1.26kg

    I thought it would have been heavier becuase of the thickness of the shit. But I dont know really just guessing.
    I m sure it is correct.
    But 26 bucks is pretty cheap.
    If you get some let us know what its like.

    that makes it 50 bucks. Still OK priced if its 2 litres but if you could pick it up would have been better since in melb.
