Good information but I would think Tetra should have been tested.

Seems some are hard to please. I don't think the guy has unlimited money. I think he did quite a comprehensive test with many of the more common products.

I agree, but Tetra is pretty common. I have not used it lately but I did for quite a few years.

add some green color and perfume and make your own frog lube:

https://www.applied.com/static/catalog/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; ... pg_261.pdf (old link, but you get the idea)

get a small can of lubriplate food grade 0 weight aluminum based grease

used to come in big expensive tubs, now in affordable sizes

umm ummm good

Too bad he didn't test Machine Gunners Lube. I'd like to know how it stands up.

The post was 'which lube is best' but maybe should have been which is the best rust preventative. Here's a link talking about lube by Grant Cunningham..........
