    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.

                            I'm happy to help, Mick! This Valvoline High-Performance 80W-90 Gear Oil exceeds the GL-3 specification that is required by your 2012 Vespa GTS 300. This gear oil is rated at GL-5. A GL-4 rated gear oil supersedes the GL-3 specifications and will also work for your application. GL-5 rated gear oil can be corrosive to yellow metals. Many of the synthetic GL-5 rated gear oils may not be corrosive to the yellow metal and will have indications in the technical data sheet such as 1A or 1B to indicate that they are safer for yellow metals. For a GL-5 rated oil I recommend speaking to your Vespa dealer or the manufacturer directly to find out if GL-5 will work for your application if you are only able to locate GL-5 gear oil.

                            Great question, John! This Valvoline High-Performance 80W-90 Gear Oil does contain a friction modifier meeting the following specifications: Ford M2C118A, Chrysler MS-5630, or GM1052358. You do not need to add any friction modifier. You can get more information about this product here: http://www.valvoline.com/pdf/high_performance_gear.pdf. If you have any question about this being the correct fluid for your differential please respond with the year, make, model and engine size of your vehicle and we'll be happy to help you get the correct lubricant for your vehicle.
