    Hi Myberg

    R170(ethane) is compatible with virtually all oils but prefered types are mineral oils and allkyl benzene,however,a lubricant with a higher than normal viscocity is normally required as hydrocarbons are more souluble than conventional refrigerants.
    If it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.
