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.
I'll show those guys who's in top place, I'll really give 'em a hotrod race.
