    I ordered a small 4500psi compressor for filling up my gun and tank.  The compressor will need oil so which oil will be good?  
    I was thinking of running ingerdollrand all season oil that I use in my home compressor or I do have black gold oil I use in my refrigerant vacuum pump that might work also. 

    Any sugestions.

    I’d check with the mfg, and use the oil they prescribe.

    It’s one of the small tuxing. The videos say motor oil but that is not going to happen

    I’m using synthetic air compressor oil in mine. Don’t remember the brand. I don’t think the brand would matter. I’m with you no motor oil in mine. I checked on my 2 cylinder this morning. It is on the plane and Fedex said it will be at my house Friday. Woo Hoo.

    Mine too. But I doubt it that seems fast.

    I just checked tracking on mine and it is in Chicago IL.. It may make it here Friday. This is going to be a long 2 days. I will let you know if mine comes in.

    I use Synthetic breathing air compressor oil in my Tuxing from Coltri, no issues at all. I would recommend a synthetic oil rather than mineral.
