Dependable Wear Protection
Differential oil changes don’t happen often, so when you do perform this service, do it right. AMSOIL unites a sophisticated shear-proof synthetic base oil and with robust extreme pressure additives. The result is dependable service, mile after mile (half million of them, actually). Long Life 80W-140 Synthetic Gear Lube withstands heavy loads and stabilizes operating temperatures when the going gets tough.
Amazing Cold Weather Performance
One wouldn’t expect an 80W-140 gear oil to perform well in sub-zero temperatures. AMSOIL Long Life 80W-140 Synthetic Gear Lube is an exception to this thinking with a remarkable cold-pour-point of -40°C (-40°F). This product not only flows and protects in frigid climes, it offers consistent efficiency all winter long.

Service Life of AMSOIL Long Life 80W-140 Synthetic Gear Lube
Heavy Duty Class 8 Trucks, Delivery Trucks, Buses
Change at intervals up to 500,000 miles (800,000 km) or follow the OEM recommendation for synthetic oil (whichever comes first).
Note: These service intervals do not apply in situations where water immersion occurs. Gear lube must be changed frequently under these conditions.
Change at 100,000 miles (160,000 km) or the interval as prescribed by the OEM (whichever is longer).
Change at 50,000 miles (80,000 km). *Severe service can be described as racing, frequent towing, snow-plowing, hauling or frequently dusty conditions.
Heavy Duty Off-Road
Follow the OEM recommendation for synthetic oil (whichever comes first). If these recommendations do not apply, change at twice the OEM oil change interval for conventional oil.
Limited Slip Differentials and AMSOIL Long Life 80W-140 Synthetic Gear Lube: Is a Friction Modifier Additive Needed?
AMSOIL Long Life 80W-140 Synthetic Gear Lube does contain limited-slip additives, but differential chatter can occasionally occur in some vehicles. As a precautionary measure, we recommend adding roughly two-thirds of the recommended dose of AMSOIL Slip-Lock Limited Slip additive or the counterpart OEM limited-slip differential additive.

Mixing AMSOIL Long Life 80W-140 Synthetic Gear Lube with Other Brands
AMSOIL Long Life 80W-140 Synthetic Gear Lube is compatible with all other brands of conventional, semi-synthetic and synthetic gear oils. While you can safely mix AMSOIL 80W-140 Gear Lube with other brands, this will reduce the drain interval and performance capabilities of AMSOIL gear oil.
The use of any aftermarket oil additives (other than limited-slip friction modifiers) is definitely NOT recommended.
