Some places say to use 30w non-detergent oil in a reciprocating air compressor.
Chain saw bar oil is also said to be 30w non-detergent oil.
So are there different additives in straight 30w non-detergent oil that you buy in the quart vs buying a gallon of cheap $6/gallon 30w bar oil?
I think I also found at Rural King a winter bar oil that is 10w. I think I'm going to get some thinner oil for when it's cold. Yesterday when it was around 20, it's like the 30w oil was too thick and wasn't coming out the saw as fast as normal.
Would it hurt to use 10w or 20w in the compressor when it's cold?
