Yep, I learned that the hard way, although it was my fault. Left the gun with pressure on in a hot garage this summer. Underneath the grease gun lies large puddle of separated grease all over my open toolbox. I spent an hour cleaning every socket and ratchet. Lesson learned. \:\!

I anxiously await my Amsoil order, I'm going to give the 2000 grease a try and the HD synthetic grease a try.
Thanks Gary Allan...........

I use M1 grease because it works noticeably better than 'regular grease', making things slide easier under higher loads on things around the car and house that needed grease. I threw out a can of Pennzoil grease because it was no contest.

I did buy a can of Valvoline 'Ford' grease for my son's wheel bearings on his F150, a moly additive grease, but M1 grease is what I keep in the gun and for general use.

I noticed the same. It works better than any grease I have ever used before.

Reviving this old thread...

I looked up the UPC codes for Mobil 1 grease at the car parts store:

Tub 0 71924 96103 6
Cartridge 0 71924 96102 9

Both state "Made in USA" on the container.

Would be interesting to see if the Mobil 1 grease sold in Canada has different UPC numbers - which MAY indicate that it is a different product.

I'm not a fan of M1 grease either, even back before I began to stray from Mobil 1 products I stopped using M1 grease because of the separation issue. IMHO, it's unsuitable for chassis use, or anywhere the seal doesn't seal 100%, like ball joints, tie rod ends, etc. It's OK for wheel bearings and the like, but that's about it.

I started using Valvoline SynPower (which still has minor separation once used, but nowhere near M1 levels) greases until I tried Red Line CV-2, which has provided me with zero apparent oil separation and is suitable for use everywhere on a passenger car. It's the perfect one size fits all grease, IMO.

M1 grease works very good for wheel bearings. My sons 91 Ranger has 340K on the truck and the front bearings where greased with M1. She's still runnin on the original bearings.

I used to work in a machine shop that rebuilt heavy equiptment for steel related companies. High heat problems. Where temperature was a factor we always used M1 grease and it would hold up great where others failed.

I noticed also in trailer bearings M1 always kept the bearings cool, even under heavy loads.

I use

Mobil 1 grease for wheel bearings
Valvoline Durablend/Synpower grease (with moly) for chassis parts
Mystik JT-6 high temp for u-joints (on Dana Spicers approved list)

Mainly a matter of what greases I already have. After I use up the Mobil 1, I might start using the Mystik JT-6 for wheel bearings as well. I'll stick with a moly fortified grease for heavy loaded chassis parts - and the Valvoline greases worked well so far for this purpose.

That's another reason I like CV-2 because it uses organic moly (MoTDC), it's suitable for use in both heavily loaded chassis parts and needle and roller bearings.

It's good in everything from wheel bearings, u-joints, and CV joints to ball joints and tie-rod ends.

It also has excellent water washout specs, better than most marine specific greases.
