I have been using Mobil 5-20 synthetic to lubricate the bearings on my pellet stove exhaust blower motor. I have read about an oil called Anderoil 465 being used for it.It has a max temp rating of 270 degrees. Any thoughts on which or any other oil should be used?

I cannot speak for any particular oil, but typically you want a non detergent oil for motor bearings and the like.
