    I use the 85-140 and have stock gears. Did you read the pdf of why they recommend that oil?

    Tl;dr: conventional is cheap and doesn’t thin out as it gets hot so it provides better protection. Has a shorter life span but since it’s cheap just change it a little more frequently. That’s what I gathered anyways.

    Nope. I was only told that that's what they recommend. Don't know the reason

    It all kinda sounds like a large scam from the major companies though. But I guess that’s what technology does to us. Provides a better product that sometimes requires more maintenance even though it’s a superior product? Why not just maintain the average product and “get the job done”. This topic can be beat to death. But don’t “beat a dead horse” because that’s offensive.

    Do you put the 85-140 in your T case too?. I read somewhere about a pump/ fine screen in the T-case and a concern that it might not lubricate properly with the thicker oil especially in the winter.

    I’ve got two weekend wheeling trips coming up so I’ll don it then. Seems like an appropriate time.
