I am rebuilding an old home made log splitter I bought on craigslist. I have a new 13gpm pump, and a 10 gallon reservoir. Looking for hydraulic oil (aw 46 is recommended by pump manufacturer), I have found Sinopec aw-46 available to order from Walmart online for $33.50 per 5 gallon pail and free shipping. A little reasearch, and I found Sinopec is a large Chinese refiner. Wondering what some expert opinions are of this oil. Seems it would be fine for log splitter use. http://english.sinolube.com/content/details17_575.html

It should be OK, can't be any worse than the generic 303 oil I use in my old log splitter. I may try some of that Sinopec oil myself once my current supply is gone, that's a decent price, roughly the same as the TSC Traveller AW46 I've used in the past ($32.99).
