Default Cosmoline pros and cons?

Cleaned up the battery terminals the other day and hit them with some RP-342 Spray Cosmoline to keep them that way. While I was down in the engine bay I was thinking about hitting some other spots. Any down side with using cosmoline in the engine bay?

Only if you ever need to remove it, ever purchased a surplus firearm stored in that stuff?

Check its flash point. Never used the spray but the peanut butter stuff is very flammable if it gets too hot while liquefying.
