    I used WD40 on them after every time out and it seems to work fine, it does burn off when your running it but spraying down inbetween the tubes helps slow down that rust

    WD40 will turn them yellow if you don't clean it off .. Great for winter storage though

    For light surface rust I use 4 ott steel wool. It's super fine and won't damage the chrome. Works great

    Must be a different kind because it never yellowed ever for me

    Sprayed it on after every time out and wiped it down with a WD40 soaked rag and let it sit till it burned off the next time out
