If you do plan on keep it in oil for any period of time I'd suggest you use mineral oil as vegi oil will build up residue around fans and some components. Mineral oil can be found at most pharmacies or stores even. Also I believe mineral oil is lighter in weight than vegi oil but I may be wrong about that :\\

Its not the cycling that kills mini-fridge compressors when used to cool computers, its the fact that the compressor does not have enough cooling to run for more than a few minutes at a time.
