    Mobil synthetic 75-90 gear lubricant

    Hi,

    Need to change final drive lubricant. Happen to have Mobil 1 synthetic gear lubricant 75-90 on hand. Any reason not to use it?

    Thanks for the input

    LiquiMoly

    Liqui Moly 2009 Anti-friction oil treatment? There are several products on Amazon by that brand name.

    I thought brand new...like with warranty and no miles. Appears dealer bought ("punched") it over three years ago which started/ended warranty and a few miles added along the way. Enjoy the ride.
