For years I've used Origional Bike Spirits Chain Lube and have been overall satisfied with lubrication, limited dirt collection, wear, etc. I'm currently using a can of DuPont Teflon Chain Saver to give it a try, almost empty now.
After just one can I wouldn't expect to see any wear, and haven't so can't really comment on that but my one noticable thing is the dirt that has collected on the chain and rear sprocket.
Also looking at price, ounce per ounce it looks like the Bike Spirits is actually cheaper than the DuPont and I can pick it up at AAuto.

I'll add a to this lengthy (but fun) thread. My owners manual say to lube the chain every 600 miles with 80-90# gear oil or sealed chain lube.

And I have yet to find anything that works better than 80/90 gear oil. :)
