Oil prices vary by dealer her in the US as there are discounts for quantity purchases, especially at certain times of the year.

 

At Amazon.com and through several online concerns, XD-100 was selling for around $130 USD for 3-gallons including shipping recently.

 

I am sure that transportation costs and possibly customs duties or tariffs play a large part in the pricing of boating items in Australia coming from America.
