    I need to pick up some Graphite Lubricant to put in my locking gas cap on my pickup working better, are there any brands that are better than others, or is Graphite Lubricant, Graphite Lubricant:headscratch::dunno:

    Okie I usually use the graphite but a guy at Lowes told about Dupont easy entry lock lube with teflon. So far I really like it no problems yet.

    Okie, the best lube to use for car locks, residential locks, padlocks, etc. is TriFlow.

    I don't think your salt mine carries it. An independent hardware store might have it in your area. A lot of real lockshops probably sell the small cans too.

    This stuff is magic and doesn't attract crud when it dries or leave black gunk behind or wait for the next person to try WD40 and morph into cement-like junk.

    I hope this helps.
