I think you'd be able to find trannies in Hollywood that will provide their own bacon grease.

I've noticed a 12*F temperature drop when running used bacon grease in my tranny! Beats Amsoil by nearly 4*F!

Never heard of using bacon grease but I've heard they used to wrap bacon around the crankshaft throws to make the bearings quieter while trading it off. Wouldn't last over 30-50 miles but that was long enough to get rid of a lemon.

rub bacon grease on your hood and front fenders and it increases MPG by increasing aerodynamics...

or so i've been told...

It'll probably make those faded fender flares black again too.

Bacon grease, duct tape and a little PB blaster, sounds like all I need to solve most of life's problems!

You'd have the cleanest Jeep in town! (After the cats got done licking all that grease off!)

Long strips of bacon make for good tow straps as well

Bacon also is great for replacing worn out door limit straps or torn grab handles. As far as the bacon grease-use it to buff out those tiny scratches on your soft top windows..............

Mix bacon grease, ATF, and acetone, put it in your wheelwells as perfume, it'll attract cute little JK's.

It works good but you may hear an occasional squealing noise...

I couldn't find any acetone at the house so I put bacon grease in my gas over 8000 miles ago and it hasn't ran out yet!
