Nice find in sure but to keep it in clean chemical got to cost a fortune. 
Any idea

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Youtube how to add a filter if your worried about it.

Why does the fluid have to be clean? Still works when its dirty.

I had (like most shops) one that was never cleaned out and it worked fine. (until shop burned down around it)

I used mineral spirits because i had a source, but i've read really good reviews of the stuff from tractor supply.

Stoddard solvent. I have used it for 50 yrs. Clean the stuff that settles to the bottom and top it off every couple of yrs.

If you google, you will find that there is very little difference between Varsol, naptha, mineral spirits, Stoddard, etc.  There is a big difference in prices at times, however.  I used to buy Varsol from the corner Exxon for years when I lived in Houston.  Naptha was often called dry cleaning fluid when I was younger.  I never forgot the smell...

Yeah, what steve said.
I liked the odorless mineral spirits.
Just tried the stuff from Tractor supply....meh!  I still like the mineral spirits better.
