    so I have a job on in the morning and have just noticed that the pump oil is low:eek: the job starts at 9:30 and I don't think any motor shops or halfords will be open till ten.
    According to the pump manual I need sae30 pump oil and all I have is gear oil as in the picture.and can only find sae30 4 stroke oil online,not sure if this is what I need!
    Think I'm screwed,would any one run there machine with oil as low as it is in the pic?
    Bloody wa*nk holidays.
    Any advice would be welcome thanks:(

    Ok bit inbarassing,I didn't notice the oil level till after loading the washer in to my van,and my drives on a slope.
    Just leveld the washer up in the van and oil is back in the middle of the inspection glass.
