I tried frog lube on my AR's and although it lubed fine I did not care for the dirty caked mess left after several hundred rounds in the gravel pit. I cleaned and then lubed the weapons with Mobil 1, now I am back to being a happy shooter.

Car oil will not work for long. It hardens up and turns to a shellac like substance.
It also thickens up in very cold weather and slows down the action.

Goofy. I have used Mobil 1 synthetic oil on my firearms for some time with excellent results and no shellacking that you mention, it is all in what one prefers. We get a bit chilly here in Eastern Wa State and I shoot in deep snow at times but the ole AR's keep on ticking. While in Korea I kept my Carbine and .45 free of any lube as it really got chilly there.

How does Slide-Glide compare to Frog Lube?
