If I understand properly D5 is less concentrated than D100L.

But is it just a question of the D100L being better (and more expensive) or different intended uses?

--

Intended usage - tube tester restore, contact switches and pots.

A small amount is all you need to wet the surfaces. Working them or following up with a pipe cleaner (wetted with D5) completes the maintenance.

Thank you for this information(!) but when I clicked on your link, and then perused the current MSDS, it appears that the formula has changed as well as the price: now $6.59 (not $5.99) and contains Caig's MechanicAll M20S-6N (not D100L).
