Use powdered Graphite and chase it with WD40, works good on every cable I've

82 diesel vanagon: accelerator cable is getting sticky.  This cable is
obviously long - front of van to rear engine.

I've been spraying some Tri-flow (Teflon lubricant) on the engine side of
the cable and working it in (having one of my offspring pump the pedal) -
that helps for a few days, then gets sticky again.  Still works, but will
stick above idle and occasionally at full throttle :0

Anyone have suggestions on a better lube to try?

Thanks (as always),
