Default Differential questions

This is on my new to me 90 CC. What type of oil in the differential? I don't seem to have any problems just wanting to check on it.

Technically... Club Car suggests SAE 30 motor oil, but 80W-90 gear lube works too!

Yea technically SAE 30 motor oil (or higher). Iv worked on club car for many years and 80-90 weight works just fine.

I just changed my oil with 80-90 weight and it works great. Just don't add to much fluid, my diff required 22 oz.

Changed out my differential fluid over the weekend. Drained around 24oz out of the differential and replaced the drain plug. Weird thing is when I refilled, it took the whole 32oz bottle of gear oil (went with Mobil 1 75W synthetic gear oil). Never leaked out the fill plug or anything. Thought maybe it would be a little off because the cart was on jack stands, but wasn't expecting to use that much.

Any potential issues here?
