It is possible but I would imagine the oil would be added to the gun canister instead of the whole batch, if any at all.
I got a batch of small cylinders for free, probably 200. Turns out they have oil. Ruined a keg of beer trying out one of those small co2 chargers.

Lots of valid points here, I looked at or CO2 filling station at work and wasn't too impressed with the condition/sanitation of our fittings, in a factory it was expected and should have thought of it in the first place. I think my best bet is to invest in a bigger CO2 tank and keep the 5lb filled as an emergency tank. I will get them filled at Praxair or Windsor Fire and Safety on one of my "Sick Days". I only wish that both praxair/W.F.S had more convinent hours or opened on Saturdays.

Cheers and thanks for the clarification
