Most reciprocating air compressors use a 30 weight non-detergent oil. Synthetic blends are the most common and least expensive.

Full synthetics are about twice the cost but well worth it, especially for smaller compressors. They dissipate heat better, and won't build carbon or varnish like other oils.

I feel when it comes to oil in a compressor Full Synthetic is the way to go.

Hope that helps,

What type oil does the dewault emglo require


Any motor oil is fine, like straight 30 weight, non-detergent, make sure it is non-detergent, or you will have soap suds in your little pump. They make compressor oil, but it is hard to find and all it is is non-detergent oil. Check it out.

It is an electric motor Dewalt Emglo Compressor model#D55151. What type of oil should I use in it?


Dewalt recommends using synthetic pump oil, however if you only use the machine occasionally and not in a commercial setting, standard compressor oil will work great and save you money. Synthetic oil will last longer and can take much higher temperatures without breaking down. Lowes sell the kobalt brand of compressor oil and sells for about $3 for standard and $7 for synthetic. Home depot sells campbell hausfeld brand but equally as good. Auto parts stores also sell a line of compressor /pump oil just watch pricing for your needs. If you can't find compressor oil, non-detergent motor oil works just fine. Good holidays
