NOTE: This list is only a “suggested” list of MTFs. It is not an endorsement of any one fluid, nor is it implied that any one fluid will cure problems in MTs that have design problems or those that have excessive wear.

A. These MTL fluids are closest to a Kinematic Viscosity of 6.X [email protected] (About the same viscosity as a Dexron VI) and SAE 70 or so:

1. Castrol Syntrans FE 75W,
2. BMW (Pentosin) MTF-LT-3,
3. Honda MTII or MTF 2.
4. Ford FML-XT-11-QDC
5. Volvo Manual Transmission Fluid (6.4 cSt) [Recommended for: type M65 5-speed with 6-cyl. engine, M66, MTX75 and MMT6 and of the type M56, M58 and M59 from and including model year 1996. Meets Ford specification WSSM2C200-D2]
6. Redline MT-LV SAE Viscosity Grade 70W/75W Vis [email protected]°C

...

You still need to add Ravenol MTF-3, which I guess would be in the A. section

If you can send me the results of a VOA or the complete Properties from a PDS we'll certainly consider doing so.

Hello & sorry for the PM re-post. Newbie mistake.
I noticed that Motul Gear 300 is absent from the list of Synchromesh Manual Transmission Lubricants, despite seeing recommendations for its use in other threads, and despite the list including seemingly similar other GL-4/GL-5 transaxle products like the Fuchs TITAN SINTOFLUID, Subaru, and Ford Motorcraft.
Just wondering what the deal is on Motul Gear 300.
Thanks!
