You can switch to Castrol R40, a castor based lubricant, which is one of the best lubricating oils imaginable, and far superior to any petroleum or synthetic oil in a number of ways. It is a little bit expensive, though at $58 for 4 liters.

If you really like the smell, get a bottle of Maxima 927 and put a teaspoon in a full gas tank. :applause:
