Not daft at all. In fact you're absolutely right - springers will burn oil.October 1 2011 at 11:44 AM

Response to Pumping oil into the port of a springer causes dieseling..
But they do it - not because the air in a springer's compression chamber is compressed to high density (actually the compression ratio of a typical springer is only about 40:1 - much less than a PCP charge at about 200:1) - but because it's hot - about 2000oF.
