Typical gas station air is full of water and other contaminants. Take it
from the guy who did service on our compressor at the gas station back in
high school <grin>

Most modelers I know who have compressor driven air brushes still use a
water trap to capture moisture that can come from condensation, etc.

Is there any concern from static generation from high pressure air streams?
IIRC from reading a can of the "computer cleaner" compressed air that it was
treated/de-ionized/something to make it safe for "sensitive electronics".
Could be marketing bull for all I know.  .  .
