i've had a few small compressors, they lasted from 20-25 years before dying from my experiance. Larger compressors last longer for some reason..

Oil and right temp shoud have a bigger than refigent used.
The right oil neads to be becuse clarenese and material used to make the pump. Temp affects the clearinse of material and viscosity of the oil:)
