Well ran my onboard oil tank dry sunday.I filled her up and cracked the cap on the motor tank while idling and it wasn't going passed 3/4 full.does it take awhile to fill up? Kept getting the 4 beep oil alarm on smartcraft gauge.

Make sure the screen on the bottom of the pickup in the main tank is clean. Then make sure the seal is snug. Could also be the sensor in the use tank. Have you checked it?

Does your remote tank have a deck fill cap? My hose got an air leak from the deck to the remote tank and I could not fully fill the onboard tank.
