I know very little about air compressors. I've just put compressor oil in mine because well it's compressor oil and the manual says SAE 30 non-detergent oil. But now I have this free VR1 synthetic 10w30 that I really have no use for aside from my lawnmower. The compressor has a small 2 HP motor. Do you think my air compressor would be happy with the VR1? The major question I really have is whether or not the detergents in the motor oil are going to harm the compressor. Google shows that Mobil 1 says no to using it in compressors. Other than that Google has failed me on my quest for information. I'm not overly interested in saving $5, but I am curious.
