I just switched brands of valve oil...

...from "whatever it is that comes in the brown one gallon jugs" (label worn off) to softlight™, which comes in clear plastic one gallon jugs.

' looks like I'll be sticking with this brand for a while. :|

I'll report back (after some scientidotal testing) on just how well it works with filthy and lime-coated valves, or with thick oil having migrated from nearby slides - due to leaving the tuba in the trunk of the car, and/or with the tuba held at a 90° vs. a 45° angle, etc...
