Vaseline instead of Dye lube? in my pm6

Man - if it helps - I got an 06 minion and I only use Sleek. - never dye or other dow 33 products. I got cold weather dow 33 , dow 55, dye lube and almost most othe recommended. However in my personnel markers I only use SL33K lube. Sorry, but I know the difference quality lube makes and dye lube is horrible.
dow 33 is sl33k lube. Its the same formula. Just different packaging and a different brand....
Actually dye lube is too liquidy (if a word). The sleek should be kneaded prior to use. Saying all dow 33 is the same is like saying all 10W30 oil is the same.

NO simply put, NEVER petroleum bases lubricates are awfull on seals and vasiline is not formulated for this use, NO. Use what the manual says, engineers spend several hours on that stuff for a reason, if they recommend something thats typically becuase it is GOOD for it. Simple.
