Just got this in an email from a friend

In 2007 “Machinist Workshop Magazine” did a test on penetrating oils. Using nuts and bolts that they ‘scientifically rusted’ to a uniform degree by soaking in salt water, they then tested the break-out torque required to loosen the nuts. They treated the nuts with a variety of penetrants and measured the torque required to loosen them. This is what they came up with ( the torque measurement is actually pounds-feet):

Nothing: 516 lbs

WD-40: 238 lbs;

PB Blaster: 214 lbs;

Liquid Wrench: 127 lbs,

Kano Kroil: 106 lbs

ATF/Acetone mix (50/50): 50 lbs.
Same stuff as aero kroil

That I do not know, If I were to guess I'd say the dextron type.
Think I'm going to mix up a batch !! Wonder if its thin enough to spray from a windex bottle.
