Looking for something thinner than my Motorcraft XG3A solicone compound or Jet-Lube NLGI 3 silicone grease. Definitely no thicker than NLGI 1 maybe even a 0 grade or similar. I'm looking at the Nyogel 760G but its a specialty grease and rather costly in small quantities. Any other options which may offer better economy; perhaps in a larger volume?

Superlube might be good. I have some of their multipurpose grease. I also have their silicone oil but I'd like to stick with grease. Sylglide is an option but I've only been moderately happy with it in the past.

Does it need to be thinner than Dow Corning DC 4 Electrical Insulating Dielectric Compound?

Superlube is very thin. The opposite end of the spectrum is Dow Corning 111.

I believe Superlube sells a silicone oil.

AGS DOT 5.1 brake fluid is essentially dow corning silicone oil with a very small level of additives.

What is your application? Silicone based lubricants can either be an advantage or a detriment to electrical connections, depending on the conditions.
