he only places I have found it is Ebay, Amazon and the Kroil website. Personally I have found I like PB Blaster better. Kroil seems to run out of aerosol before it runs out oF product.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

I have also had problems with their spray nozzles leaking badly.

I pick mine up at a local nut/bolt/fastener store. If you have any of these in your area they might provide some leads.

Fastener store, here, sells it, too. I don't use the aerosols, much, due to reasons mentioned. Buy it by the gallon, and I don't be stingy with it. I also give it time, if possible, like hit each fastener a couple of times, 2 weeks before I plan a tear down. Rarely have a fastener give me trouble.

Paper mill I retired from after 42 years. Kroil, PB Blaster, nuts, bolts, and washers, and some other items were considered consumables, and could be carried out. Spent two years stocking up.

Buy a quart of Acetone and a bottle of automatic transmission fluid. Mix 50/50 together in a bottle or oil can and use instead of all the others. Best stuff around.

I have been using a penetrating oil by Kimball Midwest. So far, it is the best stuff I have have used. I get it from a local lawn mower repair shop.

I never had success with that formula. (I'm cheap, if it worked for me, I'd be using it)

That mix is from an oft-quoted penetrant test. I found it referenced countless times, but also where the ingredients were mistakenly listed as ATF instead of power steering fluid like the photos showed.
