Antique oil vs Tung oil

I have used Minwax Tung oil for years and quite like it. I am curious to know the difference between Tung oil and Antique oil?

Thanx

I use Antique Oil a lot.  I get good results with it.  I have used Tung oil some but not enough to reach a firm conclusion with it.  It therefore seems to set a round and go bad.  I did a platter with Tung oil six moths ago anf it looked similar to the look I get with Antique Oil. Sorry, not much help.  FYI, the only place AO is available is Ace Hdw.
