Scag Tiger Cub hydro leak

Quick question. Hydo oil is coming out of the cap on the tank. Cap is on tight but it is leaking around the threads. Will take photo in the morning and post. Is the tank under pressure? Also what is the best oil to refill with. Plan on changing it at the end of the season. Should I just do it now? The hydros are working fine. Thanks for any input.
