Leading Edge, Lockwood, or CPS. I think most are going to be the same price.
Be wary of cheaper filter from anywhere else. Rotax had a SB on filters not long ago.

Eddie,

I'm still buying my Aeroshell oil and Rotax filters from Lockwood as they are only a 40 minute flight away. One, this gets me out flying and down for a visit to Lockwood and two, a delicious breakfast at the Runway Cafe. I save on shipping and once again I'm out flying. What more could a boy ask for? :mrgreen:

Oh, and I can top off with Swift Fuels 94 OCT ethanol free, unleaded fuel if needed.

Are there less expensive options for the oil and filter?, probably, but I'd rather be out flying then waiting on UPS. :mrgreen:

I checked CPS.

http://m.cps-parts.com/catalog/rtxpages/cps08-06100.php?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIzcWdo5W42gIVT1uGCh1PHwkWEAkYASABEgLW1PD_BwE

$19 plus change sounds good, but $18.70 shipping?

I’ll check the other 2.

Final price from Lockwood was $24.85, including shipping and sales tax.
