Note: at the time places pumping out oil were quite happy to get U$14.00 per barrel for their crude oil, its now selling for around U$116.00 a barrel, thats waht I call greed and the cause of massive global inflation.
So much so that we still have stock! For the Maravan outboard two stroke oil this cost a massive 10 Bs, per 0.946 liter can, that is about a doller fifty in U$ terms, it was a low (very) Bs 5.00 for the Corpoven brand. We took on 500 liters of diesel fuel and saw change from R12.00 worth of Bolivars. We used the engine often and rarely the sails in the four months we were in Venezuela.
Why a can size of 0.946 ltrs? The Corpoven grade is DT-2 de la norma Covenin 936, can anyone shed light on these grades?
