Has anybody heard anything about the old original WD40 being discontinued.My neighbour was mentioning it last night.
If so i'm gonna have to stock up,as it's still one of the best things i've found for taking rubber off the 1/4 panels after a night at the track.

Working in a small lab in San Diego, California, it took Rocket Chemical Company’s founders 40 attempts to get their water displacing formula worked out. But they must have got it right in a big way, because the original secret formula for WD-40® – which stands for Water Displacement perfected on the 40th try—is still in use today.

I use WD-40 for Starter Fluid on Carbureted engines
I have used diesel fuel or WD-40 as products to take off things like tire gunk, a bit of road tar, etc.
I also use WD-40, when an engine has not been rotated for awhile, i pull the Spark Plugs, spray a stream of WD-40 into each cylinder & rotate the engine so that lubricant coats the cylinder walls

If you read the statement from WD-40 it reads as if they have reformulated their products to meet the new Canadian rules. They don't say that directly but they also didn't say their products remain unchanged. Whether this changes the behaviors of their product or not will have to be seen.

One thing for sure, the US won't be far behind.
