Default Marvel Mystery oil

I went to the local NAPA and found my self looking at 2 bottles of Marvel Mystery oil but they had different labels and neither of them mentioned nitro engines. So I am here asking which do I get : 1 premium engine lubricant in a 4oz bottle with a quirter top

2 a 16 oz bottle of regular marvel mystery oil. (the picture attached)

BTW: online they have a marvel mystery air tool oil. is this another variation to make people like me more confused.

Does some one have a website with all the "mystery oil" products cause i can only find a select few on multiple sites.

Default Marvel Mystery oil

corvettecrazy;

Mine came in a Small retangular Metal can (same as a 3-in-one Oil can). The Air tool oil is probably the same (more $$). I dont know about the plastic bottle that you have, but you need a way to squirt/drip it in the engine.

Looks like they come in Bottles now. The Air tool oil is fine.

I use the regular Marvel Mystery oil (picture in your post). I also have a small oil bottle that is used for slot cars. Works great for putting drops in the engine, and for oiling bearings etc.

Does everyone like using mmo for bearings better than bearing oil?

The AirTool Marvel is good stuff too, but the pint-sized square can with red oil in it is the stuff you want.

As I said in another post, I've been using it in my car and airplane engines for over 20 years, and have never had a failure.
