To clean brake dust? Do you pressurize it? IPA is not cheap, especially now.

For reference, a smaller 390g can at crappy tire is $6.99 and doesn't seem to come on sale often.

Great deal, I'll stock up. Thanks OP

It's horrific stuff, I would never use it on anything but brakes.
It's a great parts cleaner for intake manifolds.

A can shouldn't last a vehicles life. I get 4 to 6 wheels worth of brake cleanings per can. It goes quick if you're degreasing a rotor.

That is pretty good considering some professionals use 1 can a wheel.

I saw this in the flyer too and also thought it was a good deal. I just bought a can from Canadian Tire for $9.

Although, I mentioned it to my brother who's an independent diesel tech, and he said his price is about $2.70. So maybe that's what this stuff is really worth.

everything automotive from parts to fluids to tools are marked up ludicrously. Source: worked auto service and parts counter for a few years and saw list price vs sell price for parts, and ordered consumables.
