Forgot to say at the time - but thanks for the heads-up on this.   Ordered a pair of bottles, that'll keep my chain running nicely for a long time.

Scottoil is a lot cheaper than sprockets and chains, that's for sure!

Perhaps a slight detour but I made a DIY chain oiler using an old pump soap dispenser tucked behind the rear foot rest thing. I modified the nozzle to a knob with a tube down to a little brass reservoir that drips oil to the chain.

I can just reach the knob and its easy to give it a short poke when I remember and the whole thing didn't cost me much.

The one thing I've learnt is not to over oil the chain because, I guess, the aerodynamics at the back seems to suck any spare oil off the chain and to hoze the rear wheel and rear disc. Symptoms include nicely oiled chain/sprocket, very crappy rear wheel and crap foot brake.
