just so you know wd40 is a oil, but the deal the op has posted is a PTFE / Silicone spray and they are very different things and do different jobs.
wd is not an oil in the normal sense and will dry out water repellant maybe

Use PTFE spray on my bike chain, seems to work well, doesn't attract any debris to wear my gears and chain. This is far cheaper than I pay . Thanks

The OP has posted a deal for THREE different lubricants one of which is oil! So your point is?

I apologise for trying to be helpful.

Still its not an oil...its good to free seized nuts, as water displacing or cleaning solvent, but its not a lubricant.

Just because it has oil in it doesn't make it an oil, no matter how much you put it in bold

Theres also oils in food and drinks but that doesnt class them as oil.
Thanks to the OP, probably pick up one of each - for info, available from 6th May.

Do you have petroleum oil in your food and drink? Of course its an oil, most of the ingredients evaporate off leaving what behind? Oil

So to be classed as an oil in your eyes it must have petroleum oil as an ingredient but any other oil is not oil?

So if i add 25% petroluem to a glass of water is it now just oil?

I dont know if I'm 100% right, just from experience, I use silicon on plastics, rubbers(e.g. door seals not to stick from frost) or surfaces that want to keep clean (e.g. bike frames) and ptfe on metal friction parts (e.g. chains,forks, locks, bushings).

I use silicone (grease) on the metal threads on the high pressure hose on a pressure washer, keeps it silky smooth for easy putting on and off. And no water ingress.

One of the best comments i've seen on here in a long time
Silicone based lubricants are pretty great for most things, especially for plastics and rubber because it does not degrade them like metal lubricants potentially can. You can even use them on wood like sticking drawers. Use metal based lubes on metals such as lithium or copper for hinges or locks.

WD40 disperses water and penetrates contaminated/rusty joints to help free off fittings. That is it's primary purpose. It's not a great lubricant because most of the compounds quickly evaporate (intentionally) leaving a mist coating of lubricating compounds at best. It'll actually have a degreasing effect on something originally oiled or greased because of the dispersing and evaporating characteristics.

So for example if you use it on door hinges when they dry out they'll probably be worse than ever.

Also note silicone will affect paint adhesion and other wood finishes too, so don't get it near anything you want to decorate.
Was going to get these as spur buys, but FYI Toolstation sell them slightly cheaper per volume

Silicone Spray 400ml £2.79
PTFE Spray 400ml £3.18

So you can buy them when you need them.

Very useful for very different purposes.

Clean the dirt with wd40 and a small brush, and apply on the rolling/sliding surfaces lithium or copper grease. Repeat when become dirty/dry again.

Nope, olive oil is also oil, and I suspect it might work reasonably well as a lubricant, short term. Diesel is also oil, (look at your V5 logbook), also works a a lubricant as well as being a fuel.

If you want to loosen rusted parts lubricants obviously help and petroleum based lubricants are oils, so WD40 is still an oil, all said and done. Graphite is a lubricant but pure graphite is not an oil. Graphite based penetrating oils contain oil as well as graphite, they are still called penetrating oils and can also disperse water. I don't follow your tenacity in claiming WD40 is not an oil.

Salmon contains oil..... but it’s salmon, not an oil, the point being made by eraldo.
Olive oil by the way does work reasonable well as a lubricant, but your right in that it’s good for short term.
Diesel on the other hand I disagree with. It’s too thin to grip to anything and will just run off whatever you’re trying to lubricate, leaving a very thin film. It also stinks to high heaven.

Have a look at the V5 logbook on a diesel car, Fuel: heavy oil, it lubricates your engine it's oil. Why do you think diesels generally give better mileage than petrol cars? Eraldos point is an attempt to detract from the facts.
