Australian "Gummi Fledge"

What is the Australian version of "Gummi Fledge"?

Or in other words, what do we use to protect various seals...

Gummi is sold world wide. Why would one not want the one recommended by all at SLKWorld?

FWIW, I have jumped ship from Gummi Pflege to Krytox GPL105. In my experience Gummi lasts a couple weeks at most before the seals get creaky again. Krytox has lasted three months so far, and outperformed Gummi from day one.

I will be updating the main thread later, but saw this post and replied on impulse.

Personally I bought 3 bottles of Gummi on ebay a couple of years ago and I haven't finished the first one yet but a friend swears by this https://www.supercheapauto.com.au/p/...gment=1&page=1 Uses it the same way, don't really need freeze protection in Queensland and his seals look and feel brand new.

Hiya Folks,

If you are looking for Gummi, the cheapest I have found (with the best customer service too):

https://www.carcareproducts.com.au/r...ege-100ml.html

I still find 303 Protectant to be superior, especially when caring for engine bays on our collection vehicles as in the photo:

Cheers

Perry
