I recently bought 5 litres of Duck Oil for £25 delivered. If you don't mind buying bulk that's much better value, and a better performer.

That's a quacking price you got there. (Sorry)

Er, it's the same value.

At £2 a 400ml tin you could get 12.5 tins of GT85 for £25.

12.5 X 400 = 5,000ml, which, strange to relate, is five litres.

I have just checked that with a calculator and you are correct.

Try getting 400ml of actual product out of out of a 400ml sized aerosol container of GT... Ain't happening, cos a noteworthy proportion of that 400ml is the propellant element, somewhere in the region of 40% by volume on a new can, which is only around 240ml of lovely, sweet GT.

A 5 litre tub with 5 actual litres of product with a supplied hand pump thing. 5 litres, no space lost to propellant, nothing lost to aerosol inefficiency, much better value.

Nah, the propellant is extra gas, so 400ml is 400ml of liquid product same as you have five litres of liquid product.

What I might have to reluctantly concede is it's not possible to get the last ml out of every tin, so you might be ahead there assuming you don't spill any when refilling your squirty bottle.

Aldi were selling GT85 £1.99 in their cycling event, most likely plenty still left in most stores.

I know it has been discussed before so forgive me for asking but, what exactly do you do with GT85? I have two cans of it in my shed and never seem to use it.

It's only WD40 with a sock down it's pants. Ok for gate hinges but that's about all.

It smells nice and is good for cleaning car interior trim. Spray it on a cloth and then wipe the dashboard and the other acres of plastic in the modern car. Wouldn't put it anywhere near a bike though.

Water repellent for after washing the bike, loosens grime in fiddly bits like derailleur springs, makes the bike smell lovely too.

Have you read the side of the can?
