The unit medic looked at me kinda strange when I asked for a gallon of mineral oil.  The mess sergeant didn't miss a beat and pointed to the five gallon bucket of cooking oil and said help yourself.

Sometimes you take what you can get.

I filled my Heathkit Cantenna with mineral oil in the early 1960's while in high school.  As I paid for the bottles of oil totalling one gallon, the pharmacist reminded me that the standard dose was only a teaspoon.
