Hi guys, 1st post. Searched for this and went back 30 pages. I have a case of unopened DexIII/Mercon ATF sitting in the garage. I no longer have any vehicles to use it in. I used one quart to mix with mobil 1 as a firearms lubricant. I am wondering if anyone has any other suggestions on how to use this case so that I don't just toss it? Any around the house uses for it, like lubing cabinet hinges, etc? Thanks, Tim.

Don't some people use a mix of ATF and various other chemicals as a penetrating lube? Some mix it with acetone and dump it down the gas tank.

Chain saw bar oil. Sell it on Craigs list. Donate it to the local High School auto shop If you lived in the rust belt, you could spray it on the under carrige

near the mistake
Call a local marina. Any boat with inboard Borg Warner, Velvetdrive, or ZF-Hurth transmissions that is more than about 3 years old will use DexIII. If I were closer I would buy it from you but shipping is a killer. My 2 ZF 63a transmissions in my SeaRay will take 4 quarts each. The marina service department might buy it off of you if it is factory sealed.
