    The settling action does make for inconsistent results when used with a pump spray bottle. Since the pump is drawing solution from the very bottom of the bottle it
    will spray a higher percentage of the settled out junk. The user has to shake the contents first. I'm not going out to look at the directions but I bet it does not
    say shake first before using.

    Lots of petroleum liquids have a settlement of waxes in cold weather .....apparently this is one of the big differences in jet fuel ... doesnt settle wax at 30 below.....Out here we have summer and winter diesel .....summer diesel will block filters in winter with wax crystals.

    More seriously, not knowing the ingredients I'd wonder what's being combusted and also if there is a long-term residue in orifices
    I read somewhere awhile back it's mostly Naptha.

    I actually like the stuff. Got a rusty surface needs a little Scotch pad work? The WD does well there. Not a bad metal surface cleaner.

    It's also good for removing glue residue after a stick on label has been peeled off.

    "Frankly, don't much like the stuff,"
    "I would never buy it again when this stuff runs out."
    "I think they put some kind rust accelerator in it. Shit is garbage."
    "knowledgeable people don't advise its use as a lubricant"

    amen

    might be OK for water displacement and label residue, but for everything else there's better

    It also makes a cheap and easy cleaner for a motorcycle chain, but some people swear it swells the o-rings in the chain and causes premature failure. 50K+ miles on my bikes and never had a chain fail due to WD-40 that I can tell, so I keep using it.
