For the smoothest, most reliable performance from your gearbox, a quality gearbox oil or differential oil is absolutely key.
How Does Gearbox Oil & Diff Oil Work?
Gearbox oils and differential oils are essentially thicker, higher pressure and more long-lived versions of the oil that goes into your engine. Gearbox oil and diff oil typically comes in viscosity grades around the 80-100 mark, as opposed to the much thinner, free-flowing engine oil. Gearbox oil and diff oil generally lasts much longer than standard engine oil, and is expected to put up with the extreme temperatures and pressures that occur within your vehicle's gearbox and differential.
Why is Gearbox Oil & Diff Oil Important?
Gearbox oil is vital for making sure that your gear box and transmission stay in good working order and enjoy a long and healthy life. Gear box damage is one of the most potentially expensive things that can happen to your vehicle, and a good gear box oil can help prevent this by ensuring that the metal parts of your transmission are not only protected from abrasion and heat damage, but also kept clean of sludge, dirt and contaminants that can build up day-to-day. In addition to this, a good gearbox oil will help smoothen the operations of your gearbox significantly, improving shifting performance and ensuring the absolute best performance with every gear change.
Diff oils work in a similar manner, providing specialised protection for a different range of car differentials. Many high performance and heavy duty vehicles make use of limited slip differentials, which require specialised protection and lubrication to ensure they're not damaged by heat and stress.
