Normally i use Chesterton 715 sprayflex gold an industrial chain lube, there is always a half can laying about work :209
Recently iv'e been using a can of Yamaha Performance chain lube that i won in bike show for tattyest seat on scoot. It's probaly expensive to buy, but it is good, with minimal fling off.

Still use the old tin with marine greece in it heated over an old gas ring, then drop the chain in for about 10 minutes, before removing it, not tried it with they O ring chains monkey
