    I'm sure others with more experience will chime in, but ATF should work. That's what I run in my belt driven Fisher. 5w30 would likely work also.

    You want to carry enough of your normally run fluid so that situation never becomes an issue.

    However, in an extreme emergency you can add ATF..but if you do the hydro system should be completely flushed as soon as possible. Running dissimilar fluids is never a good idea*.

    Buy a gallon instead of a quart, it's like getting one quart free and you shouldn't run out.
