Default Varsol, where to get it?

IN the past I have always used Varsol for cleaning engine parts.

Can't seem to find it or find anyone who is old enough to remember the stuff!

"Varsol, uh uh ehheh, never heard of it."



What do ya'll use to clean parts now days? Has been a while since tearing down and rebuilding an engine.

Apparently its still made by ExxonMobil.

Just need about 5 gal .

Use to could pump it at old stations just like Kerosene.

What have they done to the world!?

I just changed the pulldownlink to USA, and it wouldnt show Varsol when I tried to search. Maybe Varsol isnt available in the USA.

Yea it may not be available here. IDK. Did some research and turns out mineral spirits is the same thing more or less.

Varsol from Exxon Mobil is a name brand that is guaranteed to be perfect.

Been using MS and all is well.

Go to Bobistheoilguy.com (bitog), oil forums, heavy and industrial lubrication, penetrating oils/cleaners/solvents. Search for Varsol. Quite a few threads.
