Needed some fresh oil for my Seeley air compressor. I bought a litre of their own brand "High Quality Compressor Oil".
I am very happy to note that amongst the properties listed on the label it is "non-scouring" and "wear preventative".
Very happy that I didn't opt for some cheap old stuff then!

Did they also say it lubricates?

Nothing as mundane as that but I am reassured by their statement in the safety advice that "Except as a deliberate act, the ingestion of large amounts of this product is unlikely."!

A works colleague of mine coined the term "added bullsh*t" for that kind of PR padding fluff.

When I bought my Thunderbird Sport back in 1999 I bought a natty Triumph key ring and on the packaging it said, quote, " only to be fitted by a qualified mechanic", unquote, I thought 'bugger me', (well don't actually, just in case I stirred anyone, I'm not into that, it's just a turn of phrase ), the key ring's a fiver but it'll cost me £45 to get it fitted, still bought it though, took a chance and attached the key myself.

The average triumph owner would of course, not be capable of doing this. Being a Guzzi man at heart, it was less difficult. LOL
