What is the Best Rust Protection?

Does anybody know what the best rust protection is? Apparently there is something out there now that costs a lot but lasts a long time - is this better than the yearly oil type of application? I live in Montreal in Canada and really need it but I'd like some feedback from anyone who has had any good or bad results from any type of rustproofing, if possible.

Thanks.

I tried oil applications and find that they dried out before winter was over leaving my car unprotected.

I use Texaco Rustproofing compound. It's basically wool grease with stearic acid. I've been using it for over 20 years and I can attest to its effectiveness. It is basically sprayed on as a grease with a solvent carrier that dries and sticks to the underbody and inner panel surfaces, giving long-lasting protection. It needs to be reapplied after a few years, especially in the high-wash areas. I spray my own cars and have field-tested many of my own cars with this compound. As long as you can get this compound on a surface, it'll be protected from the elements. It will never delaminate form the surface like some waxy compounds (Polyoleum).

So I recommend you look for a shop that rustproofs with this compound.
