You are supposed to *dilute* the stuff not apply it neat!
Or put another way. How long is the drive?
You can level a fair area of grassland with 5L at standard dilution and
a somewhat larger area if you dilute slightly beyond their recommended
dose rate. Buttercup ivy and holly will survive it.
Roundup is the most expensive way of buying it and any generic clone
with the highest percentage of active ingredient will be almost as good.
Nothing to do with being a fool. If you're not aware of an alternative
then you buy what's available. No doubt you're aware of all options for
every product on the market.
A pity you took the time to post just to be abusive. Sign of a real
5 litres of what? My 1 litre dilutes down to 50 litres of ready-to-use.
I did say, quite deliberately "ordinary stores". I am quite sure that
specialist users like farmers can buy the stuff stronger and in larger
quantities, but it didn't sound like the OP was one of those.

Look F, it's really simple. I didn't know *anything* about glyphosate
20 years ago, until I made the mistake of have a shrub bed rotovated.
Unfortunately it contained a clump of Japanese Knotweed. So instead of
one knotweed plant I suddenly had a billion. On getting advice from the
neighbours I then dug up and burnt the rootball (several wheelbarrow
loads) and then spent seven years applying glyphosate to knotweed
shoots as they appeared. I was a dope because I didn't check whether
rotovating a bed containing unknown plants was wise or not.
In your case you might have checked the product shelf a bit more, and
wondered why your 5-litre bottle was "only" £20 or so, and right next
to it was a much smaller bottle for twice the price.
