When should I use synthetic gear oils?

Synthetic gear oil should be used when mineral oils can no longer provide protection at high or low temperature extremes, or under very high loads. Synthetic gear oils provide outstanding thermal stability and offer protection under a wide temperature range (400ºF to -40ºF). These properties result in a fluid that does not require it to be changed seasonally. Sta-Lube® Synthetic Gear Oils are offered in the following viscosity ranges: SAE 75W, 80W90, 80W140 and 75W140. When using synthetics in a limited slip differential, be sure to use Sta-Lube®’s Equa-Torque® Differential Friction Modifier or K&W®’s Trans-X® Posi-Trac® Limited Slip Gear Oil Additive.
