Default US pricing of Kroil

I have read much about the Kroil penetrating oil.

I have chased up prices in Australia and I am astounded by prices by those on selling it here.

The cheapest price I found was $77 Au for 8 fluid ounces.

What do you guys pay in America ?

Thanks
Ozwelder

Zoro.com has 8 oz. original Kroil for $16.09. I just got a 25% off coupon code so it would be $12.07 + tax and shipping.

I discover it over 35 years ago. It is geat but I havent been in the type of work that I need it for a long time now so have not been pricing it. The last I bought was a gallon and it has been exhausted for years. :-)

Crappy thing here in the US is Kano Labs no longer sells direct, and the retailers are treating it like it is made of gold.

If you need penetrating oil, there is always the homebrew atf and acetone recipes.

That is a bummer. The company was great to deal with back when I used the stuff. But like I said it's been 35 years or so. :-(

One of the local NAPA parts houses sells it for around 22 bucks a can, thought it a bit high guess I was wrong again.

Wow! Last year I bought a gallon for a little over $120. (And I thought that that was outrageous) I guess I'd better put the remainder of that gallon in the safe
