I want to know what weight is best to use would it be 10? 15? 25? I mean it seems to be everytime I search it I get different answers, some saying the spray are fine some saying spray are bad cuz its aerosol some say less weight some say thicker, can someone give me an answer, oh and would propane be alright for the kwa atp? metal slide and polymer frame. Also would duster gas work for indoors?

I use SRC brand 2.5 weight but anything from 5-10 is good. Its better to lube the seals directly than to add it to the tank. Duster gas works if you can get, hfc-134a (not too common). Hfc-152a is the more common duster but it will not really work with metal slides and you only get half a mag or less per fill.
I am pretty sure propane voids KWAs warranty, If you are fine with that use propane, just make sure you lube your seals after every game/day, propane dries them out quick.

Your KWA warranty expires after 45days from purchase anyways, do that shouldn't be a big deal.
I've heard that you want lite oil. And FYI to all, green gas IS propane.

Do not run oil in the propane adapter. This is a MYTH in that it helps lube your GBB properly.
Putting oil in the gas line puts oil in which part of the GBB? All parts that the gas passes through. Blow back unit, hop-up packing and inside the barrel.
Oil does not "help" hop-up, nor does it help accuracy. You want a clean barrel and hop-up that puts a back spin on a bb and the last I looked...oil doesn't help this.
Maintain the GBB like you would a real pistol.
Use non-creeping oil on the rails. A light oil on the trigger group and hammer assembly...but do not oil the propane adapter.
