I noticed Marvel Mystery Oil Universal Lubricant and Penetrant (wow that's a long name) at a local discount store today. When checking MMO's website I see this is just their MMO formula in a spray bottle.

Has anyone ever tried MMO as a penetrating oil or lubricant?? How did it work??

I've used Seafoam Deep Creep before, and it worked miracles on rusted bolts when I dropped my car's gas tank this past weekend after 9 years of elderly relatives not washing it in upstate New York winters.

MMO ought to work pretty well.

It is a foaming penetrating oil and is pretty good at removing surface rust.
Just made an appointment for a MediaCom technician between the hours of two and the year 2024. Maybe I'll pay my bill between November and March. smile

Actually some of the mom and op stores here sell a small (4 or 6 oz) bottle of MMO Penetrating oil. It's actually a lot thicker than regular MMO and I pick some up whenever I see it. It works just as good for me as 3-in-1 oil but it smells much nicer!

I've used it and it works well, if you want a better penetrating oil try Kroil.

i use mmo in my gasoline, have been using it for 15 years. have not used it for a penetrating oil . i think it would do good. on an other forum they said that mmo is not good for diesel. it was dodge talk forum. but i dont have the url.
