It's always acted, felt, looked, and smelled like a petroleum oil. I've never noticed it drying up, I use it on an antique reel type lawnmower (because someone gave me a giant can of it. I oil the mower before and after every use). But I have to admit I've never paid close attention to it; I use it on the mower as much to wash away any grit as to lubricate it.

Lithium or molybdenum disulphide grease is the way to go there.
