My wife picked one of these up for me at her sewing machine supply for about $4. I think it's a about a 2 ounce bottle, with a 4 inch applicator tube. The twist off lid made filling it up with Mobil 1 a cinch.

Would this be better to use? From my knowledge is that this oil is much thinner when it's cold but doesn't break down as much at higher temps. Also it has a 450 degree higher flashpoint then most oils, and resists carbon buildup and residues much better too.

BTW... Most of this stuff is over $15 a quart!!!
Send a little to me.
