I've just tried this on my commuter. Drizzled a film of mixture (same proportion as yours...) and tried to hit the chain rollers.

I've only had it on one week, but it included a couple of rainy day rides. Seemed OK. No chain creak yet and no big mess of that mixture of oil and mud.

I'm just so sick of the mess using straight motor oil... even when you do manage to wipe most of it off.
