Actually we use a solution of magnesium chloride and calcium lignosulfonate, it was specifically chosen for it's lack of rust promotion. Even with that we still use sand most of the time for traction control.
No matter the chemical makeup, Amy is still right, we don't suffer the rust problem you see back east because our government has chosen to address the problem rather than ignore it.

oh I will admit that I cut and pasted it and I will admit that I am a smart ass thats just the way I roll lol
too bad I wrote that in wikipedia
|12-02-2007 02:29 AM|
Not really trying to be a smart ass, but as you can see I tend to bring them out of the woods.........
I am impressed at your knowledge also..........but gee, it sure sounds to me like you just cut and pasted from Wikipedia:
Here is a cut and paste from the first paragraph from the link above....
Calcium chloride (CaCl2) is an ionic compound of calcium and chlorine. It is highly soluble in water and it is deliquescent. It is a salt that is solid at room temperature, and it behaves as a typical ionic halide. It has several common applications such as brine for refrigeration plants, ice and dust control on roads, and in cement. It can be produced directly from limestone, but large amounts are also produced as a by-product of the Solvay process. Because of its hygroscopic nature, it must be kept in tightly-sealed containers.
Hmmmmmmmmmmm, now who is the smart ass?

REALLY? wow that'd be awesome
Its at Exotic-Motors in Palatine
511 S. VERMONT ST.
PALATINE , IL 60067
Now the auction has ended I bet I can get it cheap, the question is, is it ok enough to even bother with at all? If you live near there and could swing by that's be awesome!
Its this one again:
The underneath just looks kinda in a bad shape to me

Not as corrosive as Sodium Chloride, but still salt.

|foxinthemudd||ya up here in oregon we use deicer liquid and gravel...|
|12-01-2007 11:15 PM|
PFFFFTTTT to Dare.
Not all northern states use salt on the roads. The midwest may but out here, we don't. Rust isn't any more of a problem for us than down in the humid south.

Northern States Cars
Due to the weather and the roads being salty for large parts of the year in states like Illinois, Michigan etc, do cars in General rust alot underneath?
Im thinking of buying that Jeep in Chicago but the underside looks a little rusty and I was wondering if in general you should steer clear of "cold weather states" if possible for the salty roads reason.
