Resists the Damaging Effects of Heat and Oxygen
Formulated with wax-free synthetic base oils and high quality additives, AMSOIL Synthetic 80w90 Gear Oil resists the damaging effects of heat and oxidation at temperatures much higher than conventional gear oils can resist. It will not thicken or develop sludge, even under severe operating temperatures such as those encountered in heavy hauling and fleet operation.
An Extreme Pressure (EP) Gear Oil That Effectively Increases Gear Life
AMSOIL Synthetic 80w90 Gear Oil provides an extra margin of protection that effectively increases gear life. Its naturally high viscosity index and shear-stable construction improves film strength and viscosity retention. AMSOIL 80w90 Gear Oil protects gear surfaces in high-speed, shock-load, low-speed and high-torque conditions, maintaining their viscosity when exposed to shearing forces. And EP (extreme pressure) additives provide excellent protection for gears and bearings, providing a tough lubricating film that resists wear.
Reduces Operating Temperatures
Due to its synthetic construction, AMSOIL Synthetic 80w90 Gear Oil is extremely effective at reducing friction. When friction is reduced, excessive operating temperatures in transmissions and differentials are reduced, component wear is reduced and fuel economy is improved.
Smoother Shifting in Cold Temperatures
In low temperatures, conventional gear oils thicken and make shifting difficult. AMSOIL Synthetic 80w90 Gear Oil is formulated with wax-free synthetic base oils and high-quality additives that resist low-temperature thickening, providing superior component protection, smoother shifting and increased fuel economy.
Compatible with Most Limited Slip Differentials
AMSOIL Synthetic 80w90 Gear Oil is compatible with most limited slip differentials. If limited slip differential chatter occurs, add AMSOIL Slip-Lock Limited Slip Additive friction modifier.
Extended Oil Change Intervals
AMSOIL Synthetic 80w90 Gear Oil has a longer service life than conventional mineral gear lubes do and increases equipment life.
Cars, SUVs and Light Trucks:
Normal Service: Drain at 100,000 miles of service or according to the owner’s manual, whichever is longer.
Severe Service: Drain at 50,000 miles of service or according to the owner’s manual, whichever is longer.
Heavy-Duty Class 8 Truck, Commercial Equipment: Follow the OEM drain interval (miles or hours) for synthetic oil up to 250,000 miles or three years, whichever comes first.
Vocational/Delivery: Follow the OEM drain interval (miles or hours) for synthetic oil up to 120,000 miles or three years, whichever comes first.
Heavy-Duty Off-Road: Follow the OEM drain interval (miles or hours) for synthetic oil up to 100,000 miles or two years, whichever comes first.
Note: AMSOIL does not support extended oil drain intervals where water contamination occurs. Check and service the gear oil frequently when water contamination is possible. Gear oils should be changed more frequently when operating vehicles or equipment in dusty or dirty conditions unless the gear system is properly sealed and equipped with membrane type breathers.
AMSOIL Synthetic 80w90 Gear Oil (AGL) is recommended for use under various combinations of high-speed, shock load, low-speed and high-torque conditions. It is recommended for use in all light- and heavy-duty, automotive, commercial or industrial applications requiring SAE 80w90 EP gear lube. AMSOIL 80w90 Synthetic Gear Oil replaces all conventional 80w90 gear oils and exceeds the lubrication and performance requirements of front and rear differentials, transfer cases, transaxles, manual transmissions, oil-lubricated wheel bearings, and steering gearboxes that require any of the following specifications:
- API GL-5 & MT-1
- Dana SHAES 234 (Formerly Eaton PS-037) for 250,000 miles
- MACK GO-J
- Arvin/Meritor 0-76D plus hypoid gear oil specifications from all domestic and foreign manufacturers such as GM, Ford and Daimler Chrysler
- Can also be used rear axles where API GL-4 oil is recommended
