I had no idea HF sold primer. Any idea why a 12 oz can from HF only covers 5-10 sq ft, but the same size can of Rust-Oleum covers 10-15 sq ft?

You're not nuts. You're lucky if you can even find any. In the last 5 weeks I found ONE can in ONE store, and had to travel 12 miles to get there. Nobody else had any. Even on Amazon you can hardly get any, and when you can it's $28 just like you said. It's got to be supply chain issues.

I guess coverage is based on how itís applied. The HF stuff has a really nice high pressure spray pattern that is noticeably different from the other brands I have used.

NAPA has 20% off, ends up costing $12.50 or so (plus tax, free shipping over $45) for DAP1690.
