What oil are you wanting to absorb? For oil change/filter change possible spills I keep disposable diapers on board. Cheap, readily available,absorbent.
Could be handy for "senior moments" too.

My guess is they're the most expensive source next to WM.

You need to solicit your salesperson to improve your discount. They are consistently one of my best suppliers based on pricing.

Funny, with my business they were consistently the most expensive by at least 25 percent. When I talked to the sales mgr his response was priceless. " If I purchased more product in the year I'd get a better discount" I replied that you won't get any sales frome because higher than everyone else. He then added if I brought in the hard quote from his competition he'd match the price. Duh why would I do that to my trusted supplier who's already giving me the best price.
This is a true story
(FYI ..I own a fab shop that spends $40,000/annum on hardware)

I believe you, it's amazing how much damage a local sales rep can do.
