PB Blaster is just ok. A 50/50 mix of acetone & ATF=Best Ever! Here's the cold, hard facts from the April/May 2007 edition of Machinist's Workshop. They did a test of penetrating oils where they measured the force required to loosen rusty test devices. Buy the issue if you want to see how they did the test. The results reported were interesting. The lower the number of pounds the better.

Penetrating oil . Average load .. Price per fluid ounce
None ................. 516 pounds .
WD-40 .............. 238 pounds .. $0.25
PB Blaster ......... 214 pounds .. $0.35
Liquid Wrench ... 127 pounds .. $0.21
Kano Kroil ........ 106 pounds .. $0.75
ATF-Acetone mix.. 53 pounds .. $0.10

Funny PB Blaster story. I was cleaning up a bunch of rusty lawn mower hardware one evening with PB Blaster. Working bare handed, yeah, I know better, should have used gloves. The next morning I had a whopper of a sharp headache, sort of like a hangover (memories of younger days). I figured the solvent (PB Blaster has the odor of a wicked solvent) got into my system and gave me a "hangover". Next time, I'll use gloves.

I recently had to use a combo of PB Blaster, Kroil and heat to remove some rusted-in-place brake disks. It worked.

I've had very good results with PB Blaster.
I've found it works best if you can give it a while to soak.
I had some very rusted exhaust bolts I needed to remove to change a front y pipe, I though for sure they would all break off. I soaked it every night for the better part of a week and they came right out!

Mopar penetrating solvent is the most effective can based fluid I have used.

Liquid Wrench over PB Blaster. Tried it on my exhaust system overnight and PB Blaster squealed like a pig. The other end of the flange I used Liquid Wrench and the next morning, came off easy. I sprayed the PB end of the pipe with Liquid Wrench, waited an hour and it too came off easy. Would love to try some Kroil next time.
