I'm still an active member over there & they are a bit too hard core for what I am into. (on the minus side)
They have given me plenty of good advice tho (on the plus side)

The fence is a great place to sit.

He doesnt say that at all, he says for blowing up tyres......

A tank becomes a plenum chamber as well, allowing the pressure to be more stable than direct from the compressor.

Moisture will still be in the compressed air, tank or not, but it will be no different to any other compressed air you get.

Thanks Darren,

my main concern is that oil will end up in my tyres, moisture is a given. A mate said that if i ran a tank, i could catch the oil more easily with a filter or something, but im not sure that will work. If the oil/moistures makes it to a tank, it will surely make it out right ?

A tiny few drops of oil in the unit 4 times a year is heaps, dont draw air from the rocker cover, draw fresh clean air, through a filter, [old victa mowers had a paer element on the handle of the mower with a hose to it they work great]

Then oil should not be a problem in your tubes and tyres.
