for 114.00 plus freight which would be quite expensive.

Can i get the address of the gallon you paid for? Did you mix water at all?

I'll use in a season - which brings me to my second question:

Since it would have to store in the shed over winter, how would freezing
effect it?  If I thought there wasn't a problem I'd go ahead and get the
