That'd be great for the man cave dunny.
I put a little castor oil in my fuel. People don't mind riding behind me at all.

Been thinking for years of starting a line of men's fragrances. I'd start with wet dog, elk urine, diesel exhaust, and castor oil.

All my bikes, chainsaw, mower, generator and whipper snipper use the same. 98 octane + 250:1 octane boost + 250:1 castor. The two strokes get an extra 30:1 castor.
On the weekends the neighbors must think they live next to a speedway track!

 So I have to admit I've no idea of the relevance of the thing in the picture, but I do know that when I was a young tackka and erroneous on many occasions, was threatened with a dose of castor oil if I didn't toe the line....no recollection of receiving a dose and no idea what it was going to do but it sure-as-shirt pulled me into gear (maybe the two older sisters had doses and set the precedent *yeah*).....so I took a break and did a research on castor oil, and had a bit of a journey finding what it's all about; do your own research, but reckon I'm gonna chase some up for various reasons

Castor oil does work in humans duTch. A desert spoon full means you won't be going out to play. In fact you won't be going far from the toilet for the day. DAMHIK.

 Yup- that's the notion I had between threats of castor oil or the strop, I was kept well on my toes *evil*

 Ok curiousity got the better of me yet again....did some research and found out all kindsa stuff, like castor oil is derived from the berries of a noxious plant that runs wild around most of Oz-well up here anyway, that we call 'Castor-oil plant' (Scientific name; Ricinus communis), and is used prolifically in the cosmetic and perfume industries....as per Gb's original post

 So I thought I'd make efforts to make my Rocketty-Flash attractive to the local girly BSA's and find some castor oil to burn and smell good...but apart from Chemists (drugstores to some) @ $9/100 ml ($90/L), it seems to be thin on the ground- so where does one generally procure this if not from go-fast shops...??
 
 Maybe I need to go down the creek and harvest some...? *work*

 Ta Musko-  I'll check it out, but good for fuel but I was also thinking straight oil for other usage- dunno what but seems maybe  good for all kinda things
