Re: Motor Oil

Reminds me of the time, mid 70's. when I could buy a gallon of Shelloil for 99p and sold it to a garage in Lausanne for 3 I think it was.

Did 3 x 3.5 tonne loads which I drove down myself and all was fine till a heavy knock on my door from one of those guys you just know is bringing bad news, and an injunction from Shell.

Went to my local solicitor who told me there was nothing Shell could do as this was not prohibited, however, if I wanted to fight the injunction, I would win, but they would appeal and put every legal obstacle known to man in my path, including I put up an indemnity for their legal costs. Just to start a barrister would want 10k up front to. Yeeks. For 10 hew wrote a nice letter to them explaining my ignorance and assuring them I would desist immediately
