Liquid Wrench, WD-40, or ???

>I may be old fashioned, but I still use a little 30W motor oil mixed into a lot of Kerosene. About 1 part of the 30W in 5 of kerosene is about right, but I never measure. If I don't want tne oil residue as a lubricant, I use straight kerosene.

It works as well as either of them, and is a lot cheaper. Only problem is that it doesn't come in a spray can. If kerosene were invented today, it would be advertised as a "Miracle product with 1000 uses" because it could replace almost all of the special cleaning and lubricating stuff we buy.

Someone once told me, "But WD-40 has Benzine in it?" So does Kerosene, last time I looked.
