AA SuperCharger oil question

Hi,

Does anyone know what kind of oil is used in the AA supercharger. I heard that they use a special oil from Motul which cost $125/bottle. Anyone know what kind it is or if i can get it cheaper somewhere else.

TIA

It's pretty unfortunate cause to pay $125 USD for about 1 liter is just insane.

its expensive, but its not like you guys have to change it every 3k miles. it has to be changed every 40k i think.

I believe AA recommends changing every 15k for their kit.

ASA uses the engine oil circuit.

Rotrex uses special Traction Oil that is NOT compatible nor interchangable with engine oil. Failing to use their traction oil not only voids the warranty, but has a very good change of compressor failure. If you have a Rotrex, get the right oil for it.
