Hydraulic jack oil

I need to add some oil to my hydraulic jack that I use to lift my Grizz for tire/wheel replacement. It's just an average car jack. I have several oils around the garage, but no "hydraulic oil". What would be the next best thing, because I probably have it in my garage. Air tool oil, gear oil, motoroil of all sorts... Thanks guys

I bought a quart at walmart pretty cheap last week for my logsplitter. I know it's a very clean oil and it wasn't as heavy as gear oil, maybe airtool air would be close. I wouldn't mix oils in an expensive system but it's just a floorjack.

Wouldn't transmission fluid be the next closest thing?

Just top it up with Auto Transmission Fluid or motor oil. Or change it all out for ATF. I wouldn't worry about using hydraulic oil for this instance, your not using it in a powered hydraulic system, so antifoam, rust inhibitors etc aren't really relevant.

Thanks guys! This helps a lot. Was worried about seals failing if i put the wrong oil in. Didn't want the Grizz fallin' on my noggin when I'm under it.
