Alternative uses for CVT fluid? #5295315 12/15/19 05:57 PM

I have a few quarts of CVT fluid left over from a project and I'm wondering if there are any other uses for this fluid. I use a lot of Ed's Red gun cleaner which uses trans fluid and I frequently mix trans fluid with acetone for an expedient penetrating oil. I can't seem to find much information on the web so I figured I should come to the experts. What little information I could find seemed to indicate that CVT fluid was more of a friction causing fluid for belt grip so I'm reluctant to use it like I would trans fluid.
So, does anybody have any suggestions for other uses for CVT fluid? Thinking maybe it can be used as a honing oil for my sharpening stones? Thank you and I would really appreciate any ideas!

Right. Use it for your Red's mixture or as a honing oil.

Or, if you have rusty tools soak those tools in it for about a week.

If you have an old diesel, I’d dump it in the fuel tank

I've soaked some rusty parts for about ten days in this CVT fluid, taking them out every few days and hitting them with a wire brush. The results have been disappointing, definitely doesn't work as well as regular ATF for soaking into metal and softening corrosion. I was hoping for some more info on this stuff and what else it might be good for. Guess I'll give the last few quarts to a local trans shop. Thanks guys!
