    Oils on rusty metal

    Does aplying oils on rusty metal witout 1st cleaning off the surface rust still prevents furthur rusting as long as the oil is there, or rusting can still continue inside?

    Clean off the metal surface with a wire brush then put a coat of Rustoleum or something like it on the surface. The key is to keep the metal surface away from moisture by sealing it. That's all I do and it works well.

    spraying every now and again with WD40 works well also
