Unless you live in really cold country non-detergent 30wt is what they were made for. Put a few drops in the port on top at the start of the day and a couple more after lunch maybe. Then again these aren't sensitive devices so as long as it's got a little lube in it it'll be fine.

Don't worry though, I think all of us who didn't have someone to tell them has filled the gear box to just shy of the lower shaft. Well, that's the level I filled mine to anyway.

What a mess.
