What would be a good oil to use in an oiling can to lub lawnmowers, doors, campers and other moving/articulating joints?

I agree and do the same. I bought 2 quarts of some no-name 10-30 oil at a yard sale for a buck and have been sharing it with an old push mower for the last year. I've even added some ATF and Lucas stabilizer to my brew just to get rid of it. The can lays it on heavy so what I want to lube will get some.

3 in 1 makes an oil for general application with a nice long spout. Lasts for years.

Thanks all. There is no recommended oil, just says to lubricate.

Zoom oilers work very well and are pretty inexpensive and easy to use. I bought half a dozen to take advantage of $5 flat shipping.
