Re: Favorite penetrating oil that DOESN'T STINK!

I haven't read the article, but from the table provided I have a serious problem with it. "Nothing" works better than everything listed other than ATF? My 50 years of monkey wrenching begs to differ if I'm interpreting this correctly. Maybe it explains it in the details.

PB seems to give the most consistent results from my experience. Plain old #2 diesel is a close second IMO.

All but WD40 stink, and it doesn't work (for loosening rusted parts).
