Once upon a time, we used it to coat flat tappet cams during buildup if we didn't have anything else. Has great cling quality, very similar to Motor Honey if they still sell that. Always did the trick for us.

It might make a good assembly lube since it's so thick.

I wonder how well it'd do on a bicycle chain? The thicker the better imo so you won't get any sling-off on your pants.

You could throw a neighborhood party and amaze everyone with the STP screwdriver test.

I'd be willing to bet that you've never been challenged to attempt this test. Now you have everything needed for a good time party.

Never put STP in a manual transmission. It shears down too quickly. Stick with a transmission specific oil even if like Honda they sometimes list engine oil as approved. It's the same with engine oil. In a manual transmission it shears down and over time you will experience increased wear that can be avoided by using that transmission specific oil. I use Red Line MT-90 in my Scion xBox and there are other excellent choices.

It works great to lube the ball on my hitch when I tow my camper.

I remember reading this in the “Compleat Idiot” VW repair manual. I believe he said that if your tranny popped out of gear to use the STP and start “saving your bread for a new tranny”...

The enthusiasts for the Economy garden tractors I've owned two of (non-synchronized 3-speed automotive type transmission) mix it 50/50 with 80w90 or straight in the transmission to help spin the input shaft down faster so gears don't grind when the fluid gets hot. Just an FYI.
