More power to you, but am I understanding this correct, you are offering at cost because you make so much already because the government is paying top dollar for amsoil instead of dealing directly with Amsoil?
Actually I sell to the Govt at my cost but they buy in a large enough qty (100-200 gallons of oil, and cases of oil filters at a time) that my AMSOIL commission check is pretty nice. Keep in mind that this is not my only income generator. I manage an airline fleet by day. I own the AMSOIL business, I sell off road accessories, including All-Pro and electrical from Blue Sea. I also do radio installation and repair as well as custom electrical system installations for the Toyota folks mainly but have branched off into the Jeep world. So what you see as me "making so much" would have to described by me as a comfortable living derived from working three jobs and being a small business owner, not by gouging the govt..
They buy through me because they like me. They cannot go direct to AMSOIL. It's my locked in account. Like any other customer, they go through a dealer. The shop manager sold the maintenance division at the Test Site on the benefits of running AMSOIL in their vehicles on the site and was given approval to reach out to me. That was about all there was to it.
