    Default Colouring for oil

    Hello folks,

    I find the level of the SAE 30 straight to be very hard to read on the Ferret dipstick for the gearbox. There's very little contrast. A friend said he used to use green Duckhams SAE30 to improve matters. That'll also help diagnose things if the oil bleeds through into the transfer box for any reason.

    Does anyone know if you can get suitably coloured oil, or if there is colourant that can be added?

    cheers, Mad Scientist

    Lie the dipstick flat on a piece of paper towel you will get an immediate reading
