Had a gallon delivered here a month ago. The box had been dropped and the can smashed down on top about four inches. Could't get the lid off with channel locks Called Bill. He said he would send a new can and some free aerokroil. Never heard from them :roll: :roll:

Are you buying all of their stuff for Kroiled possum Country :?:

They certainly do have a good product, but they need to pay attention to their business and do what they say they'll do.

:shock: Now that statement there makes me wonder just how good that stuff is if it wont even aid to the assistance of removing its own cap that has been bathing in the solution since it was poured in the can. :twisted:

I admit I didn't try too hard with the cast on my arm. I got p.o.'d that it came that way and called them. Guess I'll call them again :roll: :roll: :roll:

I do like the stuff 8)

Here's a Kroil story. About six weeks ago I was just driving my '49 Cub around for awhile. When everything had cooled down I wiped the manifold and exhaust down with a Kroil soaked rag to remove some burnt off paint. Having Oldman's syndrome I quickly forgot about it. Monday, thought it was time to fire her up again and just let her run awhile. Looked like the engine was going to explode or just catch on fire. In my Oldman's moment I'de forgot about the Kroil on the manifold. My garage was full of that wonderful blue burnt Kroil smoke :oops: :oops: :oops:

This Kroil smokey flavor could add alot to a slow turned raw possum.

Also have since found three dead meece and all the wasp nests are full of dead wasps :o :o

With a cutting torch??????????? Plasma cutters make better smoked possum. It penetrates all the joints and crevices. Some call it smoked possum ham, but it is really smoked possum butt.

As much as I hate to inflate Contry's ego, I've been dipping the threaded part of the bolts I removed from my old disk plow in Kroil and letting them set for a couple hours before rethreading them. definitely makes it easier.

Yesterday i did a creeping kroil test. Had an old spool of heavy gauge steel wire that I use for fence fixin. I was getting rusty. I put about 5-6 drops of Kroil on the top of the roll and a few hours later the whole roll was wet 8)

I like the clean fresh smell..Is that smell from the possum innerds.

Hey Mike...Glad to hear you had a GREAT KROIL experience :wink: ! I've tried with all my mite to convince the Kroil folks of the benefits of Possum Innerds...but, try as I might, they just don't want to spoil a GOOD THING by changin' their tried & true formula :shock: (if you can imagine that!!!) :lol: .

As an UPDATE on my testing of KREEN (another FINE product by Kano Labs)...I can tell you that after using Kreen in my 1999 Subaru Forrester (with 115,000 miles on it)...I've noticed 2 m.p.g. INCREASE (since adding KREEN to the gas and oil).

NOW...I'm not head-over-heels yet with the stuff...but it's headed in the RIGHT direction anyway! Besides, at $39.00 a gallon (and using 1 pint every 1000 miles in the gas) it ain't exactly settin' an ECONOMY record yet! :oops:

MORE NEWS TO COME...STAY TUNED :wink: !!!

Got my gallon of Kreen. It was 28.25/gal. ?? Also the trial size aerosol cans if Weatherpruf, Prevox, Floway and Silikroil. Will report later.

Also they sent a Micro Oiler 8) 8) . Puts one drop of Kroil where you want it , and no wasted Kroil running where you don't want it 8) . Fits right in your pocket like a pen, this convenience makes it easy to find many other uses for the stuff.

Highly recommend the Micro Oiler. :D :D. KANO labs.

SADLY Mike...The Kroil folks have made one BIG error! Everytime ya try to POUR your Kroil from the gallon can into the handy Kroil squirt oiler...you LOOSE about a quart on the work bench! I wish they'd invent a handy Kroil Pump (guess I'll have ta do it myself)...Will report back later with a FIX for this! :wink:
