Default Where/How To Purchase Castor Oil

I would appreciate some help in locating where I can purchase castor oil for use in my fuel. Also, any information on pricing would be helpful.

As Wolf said, you can get it at a motorcycle shop if you only need a small amount. Approx $8-10 per quart.

Some hobby shop sells the Sig brand of castor oil for ~$5 per pint or ~$9 per quart or ~$25 per gallon.

If you don't live near any of those, you can order the Sig brand directly from their website.

I'm currently using the Sig brand (AKA Baker's AA castor oil) for my homebrew and it works great.

Good luck.

S&W sells castor in quarts and gallons at a good price. Not sure what they charge for shipping. www.s-whobby.com
