    Gotta pour 6 ounces of 5W40 Synthetic Mobil 1 oil into a 1/2" hole in a compressor, not too quickly either or it will overflow, from at least a foot away, maybe a bit less. Removal of the compressor's wheel is how you are supposed to get at it, but even then you have to still get a tiny mouth funnel and not overfill and not fill rapidly too.

    Maybe a big 'ol, fat veterinary syringe or something with a tube attached to the tip?? 100ml oral syringe! Where do I get one?

    I was going to suggest getting a length of clear tubing from Home Depot/Lowe’s or a hardware store, and you should be able to find a small funnel at those places as well. Attach the hose to the end of the funnel and have at it.

    get a large syringe or squirt oil can and put a tube on it. The funnel will work but if you don't premeasure you might have a mess on your floor.
