Gear oils formulated to provide the protection and performance needed in the most extreme environments
High temperatures and torturous operating conditions are just some of the demands placed on the gear oils in your vehicle. Sealed away in your gearbox or differential we barely give a second thought to these fluids as we drive. Changed less frequently than engine oils these gear oils contain specific additives and a high viscosity index to ensure they remain stable and don't vary their viscosity over a wide temperature range. This ensure consistent performance throughout its varying operating temperature and conditions.
Although gear oils in the 75w 90 and 80w 90 range look similar in specifications they vary in their viscosities so always ensure you choose the best gear oil to suit most applications where you will drive. Heavy duty trucks, buses and light commercials will differ in their requirements for gear oils as opposed to passenger vehicles so it pays to compare what range these oils are suited for.
A mineral base oil performs well in most gear applications as it provides a greater film thickness at given viscosities. There are however applications where a synthetic base oil is preferable. The additive packs across these oil vary significantly based on what categories these oils fall under.
