I've heard somewhere, I think it was on a Mopar Forum, that a touch of acetone used after your favorite penetrant can enhance its creeping ability. Now I know what i'm going to use the 2 old quarts of ATF under my bench for. I already have the 1/2 full metal gallon can of Acetone. Like carl said, I would only mix up enough for any 1 project at a time in a glass container. If used properly would be worth a try.

Let me throw out another, "poor man's penetrant " suggestion, my Grand Father and Father (blackssmiths) always used kerosene. I have used it may times and still do, if I have a small part that is seized I throw it in a container of kerosene and leave it for several days or a week and it works well to loosen the parts and also softens the rust.

Also keep in mind acetone will dissolve paint, so when applying the mixture to a rusted bolt, any drips on the pain could effect the finish on your tractor
