It's just hydraulic fluid, not much to be gained or lost as heat and duty cycle are not really a factor. I use a clear one by SeaStar(I think) from boat US, less mess if it leaks or spills.

Mine has ATF in them and its dark.

The standard oil put in from the factory is 10w-30 engine oil. The power steering & trim fluid is thinner. It is quieter and faster with the Power trim fluid in it .

I want to flush and change mine to the power trim fluid or a at least a 10 weight oil.
