At the risk of getting into religion, If your chain is noisy (squeaky), and you've only got 45 minutes, just oil it with anything. WD-40, 3-in-1, even cooking oil. You'll be replacing it soon enough anyway. No need to try squeezing any more life out of it than necessary. these days, chains are cheap consumable items, and if you need it in a hurry, no need to expend that much energy on the thing.
Just curious. How exactly would you describe a chain that's "cranking and noisy"? To me, that description could describe something other than a dry chain.
