    Hi all , just got a 14ft Monarch with a 9.9 hp , was going to take it out in the A.M. but the lower unit is low . Probably will just put around a 10acre lake and was wondering if I could substitute any other oil til I can get somewhere for the real deal?
    Thanks

    No do not add anything other the lower unit oil. It has properties that meke it mix with water and others don't so if it has some in it its better to run it low then to mix it. I would opt to just go get some.
