    VELO DE Filter Oil?

    Our lubricant guage is getting low on the doser on a 3 sq m Velo DE filter. We have searched and can't find what type of oil/other? to use. Any Velo users out there with a lead!

    thanks

    Gear Oil

    I believe that the manual call for some type of gear oil. You'll have to check the manual, as I can't remember what the grade was when I changed it last time.

    And FYI the new Velos dont use any oil! Even though they still have an oil sight gauge and oil plug! They changed the design of the doser but kept the same motor body. I was ready to fill it when I called to ask them (Scott) why my new filter didnt have any oil in it.
