I fogged my Evinrude 30 hp outboard for winter. Next day I noticed a dark petroleum substance(not the same color as fresh lower unit lube) dripping from the vent hole above the cavitation plate and out the prop exhaust. Is this substance a result of the fogging or a leaky oil seal?

Its fogging oil, nothing to worry about.

thanks, I was fearing the possibility that I might have to replace a seal. Now if I can just make it through the long northern winter.
