I believe that there is a maximum limit on the oil im compressed air for human use. I have a high pressure compressor in my shop for playing wirh compressed air cannons I know that 1 1/2 inch ABS about 6 ft long will punch a chunk of firm potato through a piece of 1/2 inch plywood.

Google "Del Monox system"
they use a catalyst to convert CO to CO2.
