    I just went and looked at mine -- I am running the All Season Select Ingersoll Rand oil in my 80 gallon IR Compressor. The bottle indicates that it is recommended for all their compressors, except two (2) older models and the rotary screw type. I take it yours is a rotary?

    Any kind of non-detergent oil will work.

    Cool Best air compressor oil

    The best air compressor oils can make a huge difference in the durability of your compressor, as well as in the ability to start in cold weather.

    Like most engine-powered machines your air compressor motors require lubrication to keep them operating efficiently and minimize the impact of wear and tear, as well as to cool and seal internal engine components.

    Proper lubrication can also reduce your energy costs. By decreasing friction, lubricants reduce heat and lower the compressorís energy intake. So, many air compressors need oil to run properly.

    If you have never changed the oil of your compressor or you didnít know you need to, your first question will be what kind of air compressor oil should you buy?

    So, in this article, I reviewed the Best Air Compressor Oil along with pros and cons which will help you in selecting the best oil for your compressor.
