Trends and discovery change often. Chemicals and formulas do as well.

Its time for my front and rear diff fluids to be changed out. In the past i normally go Mobil1 for 30-50k. I'm thinking this time around since i dont tow or anything to run Amsoil SVG and be done with the fluids for 75k.

Looks like 3qts of SVG 75w90 is going to run me about $50 after tax/shipping. Mobil i can grab for $25-30.

Is Amsoil still one of the Top Tiers?

I have no doubt it is still a top tier fluid, but unless you are running on the track I would use a lesser priced fluid. Save the case and take the significant other out for lunch.

I would say they, Redline, Lubrication Engineers, and Schaeffer's are tops.

I use Mobil 1. It has been my experience that it can stay in service under normal conditions [you mentioned you won't be towing] for a lot more than 30-50K miles. No need for a boutique gear oil in my opinion. But Amsoil does make a good gear oil.

Amsoil gear oils are all I'll ever use. I highly recommend the Severe Gear.

It is always good to see that we still have drive-bys that make a negative comment with no supporting evidence. shocked

I use Amsoil in the rear differential because it's available in 75W-110. The transfer case & front differential both get Mobil-1 75W-90 & in the 5-speed, Redline MT-90. I'm well pleased with all 3 choices for the rather severe environment the Tacoma must operate in. The 75W-110 & the Lith/Complex Moly Amsoil I use on certain tractor zerks are the only 2 of their products I use, but I'm well satisfied with those two products.

AMSOIL Severe gear 75W-90 with 800ppm(only!) of phosphorus - is this a real GL-5 oil?

Yes sir, what makes you think we formulators have to use old formulations with 2000 ppm of Phos?

The Phos part is actually a new Multi-functional phosphate additive that requires less ppm of Phos to protect gearing and bearings.

Please don't use a single VOA to make such claims. Thanks!

Amsoil Severe Gear 75W-110 in the front axle and 75W-140 in the rear of my Powerstroke. You can search the UOAs for my old 2010 FX4, it is good oil--arguably the best on the market.
