Default Correct Compressor Oil Question

I'm replacing the compressor on my '96 Legacy OB and purchased new compressor oil at the local parts store. They sold me "PAG 45" oil. After getting the original compressor, a ZEXEL model, out of the car, I noticed it read, "Use ZXL PG200 Oil", on the compressor label. I'm thinking this is probably "PAG 200". Can anyone confirm this notion?

Thanks!

I do believe you need the PAG 200 oil for a '96 Zexel system... it could be confimed for certain through your dealership though .

Well, I brought the PAG 45 back, (only then noticed the label read "low viscosity") and found that the supplier (Interdyamics, or stte...), also makes a medium vicosity (PAG 100) and a high viscosity (PAG 150) version. Exchanged it for the "150", figuring that 150 is close enough to 200 not to damage the compressor, assuming that the compressor is looking for PAG 200. I'll wait a few days, though, before using it, lest my common sense approach is not valid, and someone with knowledge regarding this subject responds to the contrary. Thanks!
