Compressor oils are ideal for use in air compressors since they are non-detergent oils. Non-detergent (20-weight or 30-weight) motor oil can work on an air compressor. Be sure to check the specifications of the motor oil you're buying before using it in the compressor.

My compressor manual (a 1-2HP electric single stage oiled type) also states that ND oil must be used but specifically states that M1 5W30 or Chevron syn 5W30 could be used temporarily in a pinch if no ND can be found. I've use Mobil 1 for DECADES in compressors without a single issue.

Also to know, what kind of oil should I use in my air compressor?

Typically, compressor manufacturers will recommend a 20 weight or 30 weight (non-detergent) compressor oil. You can use a standard or synthetic blend compressor oil, if the manufacturer states it is possible to do so but stick to the manufacturer's recommendations to avoid voiding the warranty.

What is the difference between compressor oil and motor oil?
