Does anyone perfer the synthetic oil I see advertised on ebay to the standard oil that marklin provides? I've obtained some of this synthetic oil and it seems to work just as well. I believe they advertise the synthetic oil will not leave any residue behind when it evaporates. Comments on this appreciated.

Regards, Kevin

I've been using Labelle 101 oil. Seems to work fine, and many other MRR's I know also use it.

Some of the marklin oil that was used in the factory in the late 90's would gum up the lok's so bad the everything would lock up if it sat on the shelf at the dealer too long. Then everything had to be dissembled cleaned and re-oiled

I use labelle 107 on most and 108 on older models with worn out gears.

Use of synthetic oil seems like a good idea. I have thought of using thin silicone oil too!
It would seem that these oils will last longer preventing gumming in the gears and that it would remain cleaner with time.
Are Labelle 101, 107 or 108 synthetic oils?
What do you think? Has anybody tried and what are the results?

Thanks, I'll give the Labelle 107 a try. I looked it up online at various suppliers and it seems that it is highly recomended for ho motors.
