It's a good detergent and lubricant.  Good for bolt
soaking.  Looks, smells, feels exactly like automatic
transmission fluid, and leaves your hands feeling the
same way after handling.  I have heard people say it's
a good thing to put in carb dashpots to "lean out" the
carbs, but the design of the dashpot/piston is to
provide dynamic stability (you can have speed or
stability - many raceers use no oil in the dashpot at
the expense of stability since the cars are at
wide-open throttle mostly anyway), so once stability
is achieved the oil leaves the equation and the
mixture is unaffected. 

Happy New Year!
