Transmission oil from speedo-cable flows uphill, violates laws of physics?

IMHO the only way the oil will move up the cable is spinning the cable in the direction such to use it like an auger.

just a tidbit: the term “violates the laws of physics” always causes me to chuckle. It by definition is an impossible term. Something migh violate the laws of physics as we know them, but nothing can violate the true laws of physics.
