Unfortunately, too many "people" really don't know what they are talking about.
A little lightweight oil is a good thing for solenoids too as it lubes and cleans the moving parts of the air valve . Obviously though, if you flood the gun with lube, it could cause problems with the electronic circuits.
We reccomend air-tool oil for lubing the whole gun, any gun and it's regulators, because it is specifically formulated for pneumatics applications and tends to be better at getting to where it is actually needed. Also it tends not to gather all the garbage that goes though the air supply and make mud that gets stuck in the system which is typical for grease or real thick oils.
It is best to put a couple drops of lightweight oil in the ASA and shoot it through the gun after each day of play
