    If there is a farm & ranch store nearby, they usually carry non-detergent oil.

    If you have a Northern Tool (use to be Northern Hydralucs) store around they sell compressor oil. Also any auto paint supply store that also sells air compressors will have it. I also have seen it in Home Depot in the Air compressor area.

    John is right, but make sure they know you are buying oil for a SHOP AIR COMPRESSOR, not a CAR AIR CONDITIONING COMPRESSOR!

    I have purchased it from my local Napa store, but as mentioned a Farm Supply store may carry it.

    I run mobil 1 in mine. The compressors last forever with it. My BIL is a car painter and he tipped me off to that.

    I seviced all the air comppressors for the school district where I worked( 25 or 30 ) and used 20 wt in all . That is what the comppressor mfgs recommended. It does have to be non detergent.
