Re: oil for transformers

The word is affect, but it's not really electromagnetic radiation that is the main potential problem, I don't think. If that was the problem, the oil would simply decompose with exposure to light(or does it? probably not much, considering the fact that you buy it in clear containers.). The main issue here is electrolysis( however it's spelled). That is what would affect the molecular bonds of the vegetable oil. But then again, I just realized, the electricity isn't really going through the oil, unless the oil is grounded, of course. another issue would be the heat.
Nobody really cares about these specifics anyway, though. I'm just thinking out loud here, or rather, thinking and typing, although typing does make a little bit of noise. LOL.

ummm... not to be harsh but if you want to change out the oil after each time you run it I suppose its ok... I would use an oil that is not prone to a "bio-degradeable" reaction... remember.. you are dealing with an enviroment that produces electromagnetic "radiation" that will affect ( effect?) the hydro-carbon fatty acid molecular bonds (( which are weak in Veggie oil)) as compared to say petrolium based oils ( motor oils trannie oils mineral oil )

I wouldn't use motor oil. If it is just an MOT the vegetable oil should work fine.
