Been searching for Pennzoil Platinum Axle 75W-90 GL-5 online and local stores. Only place I've come across is on Ebay for 12-1qt. bottles and that seller seems to be dealing in surplus oils.

Want 3qts. Appreciate any help.

Is there something special that pushes you to this oil? A few years ago, I checked into using Pennzoil synthetic gear oil and the information that I found was it was not really that great. Unless you have some serious reason to want to use this oil I would highly recommend another brand.

It appears Pennzoil Platinum Axle 75W-90 GL-5 came out in 2014? According to articles I've read.

Pennzoil Introduces Platinum Transmission Fluid, Axle Oils. November 5, 2014 by CARS Magazine
http://www.autoserviceworld.com/carsmaga...luid-axle-oils/

Specs (pdf): https://prodepc.blob.core.windows.net/epcblobstorage/GPCDOC_GTDS_Pzl_Synthetic_75W-90_(GL-5)_(en)_TDS.pdf

Just looks like a good axle oil, maybe I'm Wrong. Using Pennzoil Ultra for engine.

What would be your #1 synthetic axle oil for front/rear of my 2016 Subaru Outback?

For me that is a simple choice--Amsoil Severe Gear.

I was comparing the published specs online, appears Pennzoil has better low pour, higher flash and higher VI.

I'm probably over thinking this.

Oil knows no age--it is already millions of years old. I would use it without a second thought.

Use this. It's one of the oils I put in my Subaru. The biggest oil concern for a Subaru powertrain has always been which oil to use in a manual transmission. Since you've got the CVT, there isn't much to worry about. The differentials aren't picky.

A have a question about Pennzoil Platinum Axle 75W-90 GL-5.
Is this axle oil HC-based or GTL-based or PAO-based?

Oddly enough... M1 is hard to find up here... and Penz green label is easily at hand... although its $18 a litre, and M1 is even more than that, in the ...order of 24+

Amsoil, just did our 08 jeep yesterday, front- rear differentials and transfer case, all amsoil products, products I received thru their recent free shipping deal. Loaded up with the good stuff. Next up, the titan, but some COLD ARTIC air heading our way, delay possible.
