    I went crazy outside and sprayed every bolt on the frame/axles that I could see with MOOVIT penetrating fluid/lubricant. And it isn't the best for sticking to the metal, so some of it drips down on the cement carport ground. Will it stain? I dont want black splotches all over it in the spring. There is also alot of splatter, from where it hit the bolt/nut/etc and hit the ground.
    If it does stain, I guess I'll look into getting some chemicals to get it cleaned in the spring /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    any kind of oil will seep into concreet, how bad it stains or how hard to get it cleand up depends on what the makeup of your concreet is and what the finish is, like smooth finish, or broom, or salt etched.

    Anything liquid that gets into the pores of the cement will stain it including penetrating oil and the grease that it dissolves and splatters onto the cement. If you are concerned about staining the driveway put cardboard underneath till its done dripping /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    it has a really smooth finish.
    I have some carboard, so next time i spray I will use that.
    Thats kind of what I thought, since oil seeps in, fluid would too...
