Accidentally or on purpose?
I once accidentally got some Mobil-1 on my lips, and it was actually kind of Sweet.(Not "Cool"-Sweet)
It happened again a few weeks ago. I was changing oil, got some on my fingers, and accidentally touched it to the filter if my cig....
I'm posting now, because i just did the same thing w/ k&n Filter oil.
Once again, Kind of Sweet, but a little more of an irritant.
I know, it's Wierd, but I was surprised at the taste...

When I was changing my oil last summer it had just started to drain out when my brothers dog came to visit me under the car. Scared the crap out of me and I got a head covered in oil. Valvoline synthetic tasty and a good conditioner too, I had shiny manageable hair for a week.

Michael: I'll have a Mobil 1 ****tail ready for you Friday at FX03. Do you like yours shaken or stirred?

I've spilled about every fluid in a car on my head at one time or another.
Oil just tastes oily to me.
ATF leaves your hair super shiny, way better than oil.
Coolant is incredibly super sweet. The part that sucks is having to spit and wash your mouth out for 10 minutes to make sure you didn't swallow any.
I can't belive how hard it is to take apart certain pieces of cars from below without dripping fluids on your head.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">You can swallow ethylene glycol. Just don't swallow the whole mouthful of it. Spit out what's there and move along. take a swig of black coffee and all will be fine. It's so dangerous to animals because they LIKE the taste, and they'll drink a pint of it with no qualms whatsoever. a single lap of it wouldn't hurt any animal, and what's left over in your mouth certainly wouldn't hurt a person much.

That being said, yes, I taste automotive fluids intentionally. Not every time I change them, but I know what they all taste like. ATF, Gear oil, motor oil, antifreeze, washer fluid, brake/clutch fluid, etc. the worst is motor oil mixed with coolant.

Locktite is pretty sweet too. Ohh, also, used motor oil is a known carcinogen (sp?) according to the warning label on some of the bottles I have seen. You may not want to get that stuff in your mouth.

The worst smelling lubercant is Gear oil...80-90 weight. I hated coming back to the barracks smelling like this when I was doing services on Humvees. I've tasted plenty of differnt luberants, not by choice though
