My quart can of penetrating oil is empty. I think Stick recommends acetone and ATF Dextron at 1:1.

I guess this is still the best for penetrating oil?

If Stick says it's good it is good.

He wasn't the only one that has tried it if I remember the responses correctly. It seems to me several people said that it works as well as anything they've tried.

Ha! My mind went to Penetral. Oh that would work so well (not!) Of course, Penetrol hardens, which just might not be a good thing, when trying to loosen stuff.

I look forward to hearing more on this hack.

Well I am of the opinion that this is the very best. Of coarse you have to try it to find out.

I had a quart of Dextron III which I used for the mixing. I hope it is OK. None of my vehicles use the non synthetic Dextron. Even my manual 5 speed truck uses synthetic ATF in fact it requires 100% synthetic.

I seem to be working lots of old machinery so I think this will be a good cheap solution for penetrating oil. The Acetone is $4.50 per quart at Walmart and the Dextron was free since it was a left over.
