Magnesol monopoly

Lets break the magnesol monopoly and have an FTE supplier sponser. The Dallas group out of Indiana only sells and bags in 45lb rs but the only guy selling it anywhere is Frypower out of Tennesee. Why????!!!!!! Its bagged by the dallas group and specifically says on the bag for biodiesel dry washing. I bet the price would come down if others could sell it....Monopoly defeats competition when your the only resaler not the wholesaler.

Kennedy,

The issue is buying in small lots. Fabman says if you want a truck load he can get that for you. So if we got together and purchased a truck load and split it up we probably could reduce our cost.

Troy,Troy, Troy.........There is NO monopoly on Magnesol sales! Nobody is stopping you from buying a "Load" and reselling it.............I've talked with them about setting up a west-coast distrubution for there product, NO PROBLEM!!

I would gladly set it up and arrange for a load to be shipped to my location, Just send me a check for $10,000

Smart @$$es. Its already bagged from the Dallas group in 45 lb bags, why cant doesnt anyone else sell it? Ive already contacted my chemical supplyer(lubricationspecialties.com) and I should have an answer next week on purchasing as well as bigger filters and cans.

CheaperJeeper is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I believe what you are calling a "monopoly" is really a patented product and an exclusive distributor / producer relationship.
