It doesn't have the lubricating properties that #2 oil has and could seriously impact the life of the pump depending on its design. A chopper pump can handle it reasonably well, gearpumps will have big problems with it.
Thanks again, I didn't know that! Will mix in #2 , maybe the inlet isn't gunked up. If I have a gearpump, what kinds of signals will it give me that it's failing? Or will it just sizz up and stop? I'm pretty much shut down so I don't think I have killed it yet?
