I buy them in 100 pads increments at about US $0.50 each for the pads that are something like 15x18 inches. They might not be as compact as the example in post #1, but they're very absorbent. If you own Perkins engines, that's an important feature.

LOL! When we had our Perkins, I used to always tell people, "It's like a Harley Davidson. If it's not leaking oil, you know you're out of oil."

$43 for box of 200 from Amazon. They work great and it's one of the least expensive.
