IN PRINT — Rust Never Sleeps: There are ways to combat corrosion

It's too bad that corrosion isn't a line item on a budget. Maybe it's best that it isn't. The figure would shock you. It's one thing to track replacement costs for brake parts and wheels that are prematurely removed from service, but many of your electronics-related problems likely relate to corrosion, too. Emissions systems faults, Antilock Brake System faults, lighting and more probably stem from corrosion. Your budget line item should probably include downtime as well as the cost of the failed part.
