Just a heads-up on MMO. There's no 'mystery' about it even though the manufacturer doesn't want anyone to know what's really in it. Go to our SAFETY FORUM for MSDS info. They (MMO) now link to a Chinese web site so can further avoid disclosing product ingredients. They use to just say "Proprietary Information" and didn't list ingredients, then did in English for a while. The current LIMK (see below) shows an ingredient list. Most of these 'snake-oil' products use up to and around 99% plain old mineral spirits as the main ingredient with a few inert things tossed in. Note “Petroleum Distillates” and “Stoddard Solvent” are both terms for Mineral Spirits. You are better off buying a gallon or 5 gallon pail of plain mineral spirits from NAPA or a reliable supplier and using it or making your own mixture. Mineral Spirits is also the same substance used in charcoal lighter fluid, and paint thinner, usually 100% pure. Yeah, it is your tractor and you can do anything you want to it. I’m merely pointing out the facts so you can get the best value for your dollar.
