Arrow Penetrating Oil

What's the best out there? I've always used Blaster it seems ok..AZ has Seafoam but it's $10 a can.

I see a lot of mechanics using plain old wd-40.

What do you guys like?

i like PB blaster, but for when things are really stuck my dad makes his own. i've got no idea what goes into it ( i know marval mystery oil, deisel fuel, ATF but there's more than that...) but it's some of the best crap i've ever used. works VERY well for unseizing engines and it eats the rust right off of old hardware

Found this online:

"The April/May 2007 edition of Machinist's Workshop 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. Mighty interesting results for simple acetone and tranny fluid!

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

The ATF-Acetone mix was a 50/50 mix (1 to 1 ratio).

The ATF-acetone mix is lot cheaper in quantity than the other proprietary products and apparently works twice as well as the next best thing."
