OHHH MY ...this will take another thread,,,between the un-stable fuel prices and the never ending whinners..i had to shut the doors to the public...if i made $500.00 i had to do $3000.00 worth of work..

when i first opened within 1st month i was selling 20 plus barrells per month.......most of it was pre-selling with a business card and a handshake..i kept about $2500 worth of fuel on the floor (whole-sale)...then my VP dealer ( vp south)...would get in a price change and would fail to notify me...so you figure when i would go down with a pre-sale order or 10 to 12 drums and the price was jumped up by .30 per gallon this was $16.20 per drum i had to eat..the 1st time...the second time it was .40 per gallon on a 8 drum order wich was 21.60 per drum i had to eat....
on top of this the idiots had the nverve to brag in the font office of how they had a couple of Clemson University students that drove from the campus all the way to (vp south) 4 hours 1 way and paid full retail for a drum of methanol...and here i was with 4 drums on the floor just 20 minutes from the university....IGNORANCE AND GREED.......so this was the end of my venture with VP...MY CHOICE....


i have several other stories about VP South but i will shut up or i will be sorry for what i say..maybe not ..but i won't chance it...lol....at the highlight of my business i was selling more Fuel than Clements racing one of the biggest racing outfits on the east coast.......I also got out here and got one local track agree to sell VP fuel instead of Sunoco..i took this back to VP and they would not give me any incentive to finalize they deal...we are talking selling 500 gallons per weekend from the bulk truck.

ohh well i went over to Sunoco and became a fuel rep for their company out of winston salem N.C....THEY WERE GREAT..my 1st order i went to pick up myself just to get to know the people at the warehouse. i purchased $6,000 wholesale and had it sold within 4 business days...before i could call in another order i got a call from regional sales manager advising me they sold me the fuel .10 gallon too cheap...lol...
anyhow i presold another $3,000 and they delivered just to start the same circle of the jacking up the prices....SO I CALLED IT OUITS due to the market...i am still in Good with Sunoco and if the fuel market ever stablized i might make another run at it but as of now the market is too crazy with fuel

i spent a great deal of time and money to make this deal happen..(VP SOUTH) made many promises that they did not up hold...

anyhow didn't mean to steal the thread...good luck to you Ron .
and at least your doing it instead of talking about it..more than i can say for a few of mutual people we know from another life...LOL...
( If you need for me to elaborate i can pm you.... 8) 8) 8) )

thanks brian

Ron..Check the spelling in the Pro Comp rockers as the word manufactured is wrong and also in the Ford part of the same section manufactured is wrong...And then Romac section need to capital the word Easy and mispelled word "finish" and also capital word Rear in start of a new sentence...Man I ain't picking, you asked so I am checking...Glad to see you made the jump and good luck..The pig is on your side...I will look more when I am awake more...I have had my site for 2 years and have not finished it yet....

Hey Brian, that story is funny... and I dont mean that in a bad way, it just so true, I mean, if you dont laugh you would surely cry.....It is really an uphill battle to make a couple bucks in a small business these days...

Ron, good luck with the business... does this mean we all get 20% off below cost.? well we are all like friends, right? and we will tell everyone about you......lol... just kidding there ron,
You really find out who your friends are when you open a business :shock: gotta give them all free parts, free labor and no tax.
unfreakenbelieveable i tells ya... :roll:
If you want a friend in business, get a dog.....or maybe a pig....or a goat... :lol:
