My oil-less compressor crapped out today so I grabbed my Hitachi compressor. I'm doing some framing outside and the temp is 30's and this compressor doesnt want to budge do to the oil turning to molasses.

Ended up using my pancake compressor but running the framing gun for floor sheathing sucks.

Is there any additive to add to the compressor oil to make it thinner in this cold weather?
The oil it takes is 5w-50 fully synthetic.

Just love it in the summer its quieter and lot more air
