At only 22oz. I chose to use a 30w synthetic. Add until it comes out the fill hole.

If an older CC cart developes a little rear end noise it helps to use a 90w gear oil. Picked this advice up a couple of years back. Have tried it on two carts and worked great.

The book says SAE30.. but I can speak from experience... Club Car's service department and ourselves (An Authorized Dealer) have always used 80W-90 with no problems at all.

80-90w gear oil and 30wt motor oil are very close to the same thing viscosity wise But I don't know why a dealer would go against what the manual calls for?
