Re: compass oil
I read somewhere that baby oil is OK. If you are just trying to eliminate a small bubble, the volume of new oil will be insignificant compared to the old oil anyway. If you are replacing all the oil you should try and match the viscosity or it will be slow to respond. You can thin with alcohol but that is what might dissolve the writing.
