I'd like to add that including some oil in the mix does NOT create a slimy mess. When someone posts this type of comment, they lose all credibility. I've been using oil in the mix for at least 18 months now and my drivetrain requires very little cleaning. The key is not to use more than 1 part oil to 3 parts paraffin. As I noted, the amount of naphtha in a liquid lube can be reduced to as little as 3/1 or increased to make the lube stay liquid at lower temperatures. It's user choice.
