I would not be using any Glycol based fluid such as Dot 3 or 4 due to the hygroscopic (absorbs moisture) tenancies of it.

A while ago I sprayed a small about of silicone spray in my springer and cycled the piston several times to spread the lube.

Later that day I was shooting some stuff through my Chrony and decided to see what fps the air rifle was doing, first shot had the report of a .22 rimfire and clocked around 1350 fps.
I learned that day exactly what dieseling in an air rifle is, for the record the air rifle usually runs around 850-900 fps.
