30 SAE motor oil for CC electrics...

80W-90 gear lube for CC gassers...


my 2 cents!

Cool info...I'm new here. What about gear oil for a 1984 DS electric? Weight and Type (synthetic?)

Welcome to BGW sch151!

I'm about 75% sure that 30W motor oil has been the standard from the start, anyone can feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
And upgrading to synthetic is never a bad thing!

FWIW: I always use synthetic oil in my transaxle, usually 80w-90. The stuff I use comes in a 1-quart bottle with a 'nozzle' for a cap. Using that, I can squirt the oil into the filler hole on the front side, just fill it until it runs back out, the put the plug in.

I've thought about using the 5w-30 synthetic oil that my Dodge truck transmission uses. Seems like if it'll protect a tranny that handles 500+ ft.lbs. of torque from the Cummins, it should protect the gears in a golf cart.

This is exactly the thread I have been looking for. I have no idea if my axle oil has ever been changed. I look at it spotted the drain plug but where is the fill on an ezgo txt electric axle? Thanks in advance.

EZGos don't have a fill point. It is just assumed that the cart is thrown away before ever needing a differential oil change.

But if you really want to find it, try here:
