I cannot handle the smell of PB Blaster.
Kroil is what I use the most.

liquid wrench smells to much


Check To See That The Oil Jugs You Buy Have The Exact Amount Of Oil In Them And Have An Inner Seal Under The Cap. I Use Mobil 1 And Fram Ultra Filters

Kroil is without equal IME. Excellent stuff...

Liquid wrench has a second formula available called L2 that smells less, I guess to compete with WD40.

If you're blending your own, add some GL5 gear lube in the mix, enough to smell it in the final product, the EP additives will help keep the bolt from grabbing the stud when you have it halfway off. Stops all that nasty screeching noise.

I have tried it and works well but it is slow to penetrate. CorrosionX is thick and that makes it slow to get into the parts. For rusted nuts and bolts, I would stick with a dedicated penetrant like kroil or PB blaster because they work faster.

CorrosionX works will when you dont have a fast penetrant on hand though.

I use the Blaster PB 50 and so far it has served us well.

I have recently found MechanicALL by CAIG to be a great all purpose penetrant/lubricant.

So what is the definition of faster. You got a rusted bolt or nut. Its been on there for 100k miles or years. Hmmm,,,spray on MMO, PB, etc, let it sit overnite,,,it will come off in the morning,,slow down gang, have a cup of your favorite drink, where u going so fast, life is short, u are young, breathe, watch the Mallards land in the pond,go fishing,buy a Fram filter and make someone mad in here,lol

Another vote for Kroil. Any of the forms. If I had offspring I suspect my gallon can of SiliKroil could be handed down several generations before it gets used up. A little goes a long way.

It does have an annoying habit of dissolving the inside parts in pump type oil cans.

I dont know if its available to you guys in the US, but I've found GT85 to the the absolute best of the best for its penetrating/creeping abilities, quite often a squirt of GT means I dont need to get the oxyacetylene torch fired up
It really is good stuff!
