How would you like to make your own to loosen them nuts and bolts? Two ingredients.....Kerosene and Motor oil.
I do not know the exact ratio but to start with..try 20ozs of kerosene to 1/4 cup of motor oil. Without wasting it.....get a
10cc syringe w/ 40ga. needle or even an eye dropper. thumb

Just straight diesel fuel is best penetrating oil.

The oil acts as a carrier for the kero.

There are several good You Tube videos. They taught me that time makes them all much better.

50% ATF to 50% Acetone, published in a magazine years ago and tested against all the major brands.

Yep. I use Kroil oil. Also PB Blaster. No need to mess with anything else unless its something that has to be submerged and soaked in a pan.

I have used a lot of Kroil over the years but seems like the nozzle gets stopped up a lot. PB Blaster is cheaper and available at Wally World so use it now. Both seem to work good on rust.
