General Pump Oil Question

I just got in a General TS2021 and of course it didn't occur to me to order their oil to go with it. If I'm interpreting their information correctly I'm supposed to use 'General Pump Industrial Pump Oil Series 100'.

What's so special about this oil? Is there an off-the-shelf alternative? I wanted to put this thing on the rig tomorrow and I'd like to know if I can go with something I can get locally or if I'm SOL.

I understand there'd be a warranty issue from their POV; just wondering what y'all do in the field.

I've been running a non-detergent 30 weight in my old Hotsy for oh... ten years now without a problem and I guess I just figgered I'd keep on doing the same. Maybe not.
