    To trust 'ON' something

    Hi all,

    I've come across this sentence in an advert, which sounded odd as the preposition is not what suggested in many resources.

    "Trust on our experience !'

    What sense is 'on' supposed to carry in this usage then?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    I don't find it natural at all. I'd use either "Trust our experience" or "Trust in our experience".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Many thanks. I just thought it might be one of those cliches/usages only native speakers would understand.
