When you use the oil as an enema, it allows the doctors to see your lower GI tract. Actually, I have no idea. But I couldn't resist the barium enema comment.

Barium is ususally in the form of a Barium Sulfonate. It is a multi-functional additive used as: 1. Soot detergent (in some diesel oils) 2. Metal Protector and anti-rust Barium is also used in liquid and spray-on metal protectors.

Mola, Can it be used to suspend contaminates as well. I was thinking that it is added to ATF to suspend clutch particles??? Am I way off base?
