The liquid gold I was talking about is GM/Delco blower oil.

I thought the gear oil thing on the supplier's listing was just a "lost in translation" thing, but it seems that there are a LOT of opinions on which blower oil to use and some of them include hypoid gear oil.

Some blown alcohol drag racers say to use two-cycle oil because it will burn and not hydrolock the engine if a seal blows. At the same time, max-effort drag blowers don't have to last many hours between rebuilds.

Others say they use what goes in the engine.
