Default Plus gas, GT85, WD40 - which one?

Morning All,

So which penetrating oil (keep it clean!) do you guys recommend.

Finally got the front body work off the 110 after a bit of a scrap and see loads of nice rusted bits and bobs. I am going to buy a bucket of the stuff to drown everything in and would like to get the one with the best track record.

Any information gratfully received as it will help to save a bit of the folding.

Regards

GT85 is good, currently trying the 3-in-1 penetrating stuff. Seems OK so far but haven't come across any truly rusted to ferk bolts yet...

seeing you wont be using the bolts again just get the angle grinder on them - or a gas axe - or just heat to help crack them

WD40 dispurses moisture, havn't tried any GT85 products but Plus Gas is pretty good

WD40 and GT85 are both pretty good - GT85 isn't (so im told) as corrosive, and lubricatres for longer, but i think WD is slightly more penetrative.

Agreed about the grinder though.

Plus Gas is best penetrating / releasing stuff.
WD40 is best moisture dispersant, but becomes sticky after repeated application and time.
GT85 is better at penetrating than WD, but not so good at dispersing moisture.

I use GT85 because it smells nicest.

The best rust buster type penetrant is made by Cyclo products(made in USA ) called break=away dont know if you can get in UK but if you see any grab it. Its light years better than the others I came across it in OZ

I sent these guys an email requesting more information about there products and they sent me a DVD showing demo's of all their products. On one of the clips they show an Electric drill still working when immersed under water!! I've since ordered a case from them and it really is good stuff!

Drop them an email at sales@q20oil.com
