Oil weight

Though, obviously, compressor lubricating oil has a weight, what you want to add is...

1) the oil that is recommended in your manual, particularly if the air compressor is under warranty

2) an oil that is designed for air compressors

If you do not know the oil that Devilbiss specified, and your air compressor is a reciprocating type, visit your compressor store and purchase Compressor Lubricating Oil. That should suffice.

If your air compressor is not reciprocating, then identify the model and type and we'll see if we can help.
