    It's GEAR OIL.

    It does what it's supposed to. And with the additive (NOT the Tim Leary stuff... Limited Slip Differential Additive) already in it, it saves you a few bucks.

                Service your differential and it will keep giving you service. Gears need fresh lubricant, it wears out over time and use.

                  Product was easy to use. Was used on a Silverado pickup differential maintenance. If the bottle design was changed a little to allow for the last quarter amount to be added, it would help in the installation. But overall, it was a breeze.
