AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® Synthetic Extreme Pressure (EP) Gear Lube is a premium-grade gear oil specifically engineered for maximum performance in severe-duty applications. This state-of-the-art AMSOIL formulation features an exclusive blend of high-viscosity, shear-stable synthetic base oils and an extra treatment of high-performance additives. AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® Synthetic EP Gear Lube maintains its viscosity for long-lasting protection against metal-to-metal contact. The proprietary AMSOIL additives form an iron-sulfide barrier coating on gear surfaces, providing the ultimate line of defense against wear, pitting and scoring. AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® helps prevent "thermal runaway" - a phenomenon caused by a lubricant's inability to control friction and increased heat under high-stress conditions. By controlling thermal runaway, AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® Synthetic EP Gear Lube inhibits rapid lubricant degradation and component damage. Equipment runs better and lasts longer with AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® Synthetic EP Gear Lube.

A multi-functional lubricant designed to surpass the requirements of equipment and automotive applications calling for an SAE 80W-90 viscosity grade. Formulated with wax-free synthetic base oils and high-quality additives, AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR resists thermal breakdown. Its naturally high viscosity index and shear-stable construction improve film strength and viscosity retention. Provides outstanding protection for gears and bearings, resists heat and helps extend equipment life.
AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® 80W-90 provides:
• High Load Gear and Bearing Protection
• Longer Oil and Equipment Life
• Lower Maintenance Costs
• Compatibility With Conventional and Synthetic Gear Lubes
• Multi-functional for Multiple Applications
For product service life in differentials, consult your owners manual or the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) to establish the application, NORMAL or SEVERE.
|Cars, SUVs, Light Trucks||Drain at 100,000 miles of service or according to the owner's manual, whichever is longer||Drain at 50,000 miles of service or according to the owner's manual, whichever is longer|
|Heavy-Duty Class 8 Line Haul||Follow the OEM drain interval (miles or hours) for synthetic oil up to 250,000 miles or three years, whichever comes first.|
|Vocational/Delivery||Follow the OEM drain interval (miles or hours) for synthetic oil up to 120,000 miles or three years, whichever comes first.|
|Heavy Duty Off-Road||Follow the OEM drain interval (miles or hours) for synthetic oil up to 100,000 miles or two years, whichever comes first.|
For product service life in non-differential applications, consult owners manual or the OEM for either normal or severe synthetic oil service intervals. Where service intervals are unavailable, drain at twice the interval for conventional oil.
Note: AMSOIL does not support extended drain intervals where water contamination occurs. Check and service the gear oil frequently when water contamination is possible.
Gear oils should be changed more frequently when operating vehicles or equipment in dusty or dirty conditions unless the gear system is properly sealed and equipped with membrane type breathers.
AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR (80W-90) provides superior performance and replaces competitors' 80W-90 gear oils. It is formulated to exceed the requirements of front and rear differentials, transfer cases, transaxles, manual transmissions, oil-lubricated wheel bearings and steering gear boxes.
AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR (80W-90) is compatible with synthetic and conventional gear oils, however mixing oils reduces the benefits and nullifies the extended service life recommendations.
AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR (80W-90) is compatible with most limited slip differentials. If limited slip differential chatter occurs, add AMSOIL Slip-Lock friction modifier additive.
This product is not expected to cause health concerns when used for the intended application and according to the recommendations in the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).
Keep out of the reach of children. Don't pollute. Return used oil to collection centers.
