You might have heard engine oil referred to as motor oil or vice versa. Both products are the same in the market and simply refer to any substance with a base oil that's laced with additives (anti-wear additives, dispersants, and detergents, to name a few).
Gear oil is a lubricant for manual transmission while transmission fluid is a lubricant for the automatic transmission of semi-trucks and other heavy and light-duty vehicles. In essence, they perform the same functions. However, they differ in chemical composition.
This is a good question. Yes, you can use compressor oil to lubricate air tools. You can use any “light” oil to do the same job. But, the oil must be compatible with the tool’s seals and the airline material. It is not recommended to use WD40 or 3 in One type oils. Products with an ISO number of 10 - 15 would be ok.
Automotive oil recycling involves the recycling of used oils and the creation of new products from the recycled oils, and includes the recycling of motor oil and hydraulic oil
Motor oil does go bad after a certain period. It has a shelf life of around 5 years if it has not been opened. But it is preferable to utilize the oil within a year of opening the bottle. Otherwise, the oil might go bad even before the expiration date ends.

Mineral-based (hydraulics oil manufactured from the oil out of the ground). Hydraulic oil is not biodegradable. It is very toxic if spilled. Biodegradable hydraulic oil is manufactured in a different way using completely different technologies.
No, hydraulic oil is a type of hydraulic fluid. However, unlike hydraulic oils, hydraulic fluids are used in automatic transmissions and are an alternative to hydraulic oil when flammability is a potential issue involved in operating environments.
That depends upon the size of the forklift. The one in the depot will hold about 40lt. A forklift at Felixstowe docks will hold about 400lts.
Thick, very dark, or black engine oil usually indicates that your oil has been exposed to dirt or dust contaminants that lead to a soot build-up.
Direct injection gasoline engines produce soot over time that causes standard motor oil to turn black and thick
