Need some help here.

I need fully synthetic GL-5 gear oil of the following grades:

75W90
75W140

Can anyone identify a place in Pune or Mumbai or Delhi for this grade of oil.

Have been trying to find Mobil branded oil but haven't had any luck.

75W90 transmission oil is available in Mobil,
but only in 210 litres barrel form.

For small packs in the after market, only 80W90 oil is available
with Castrol, Mobil, Gulf, Bosch etc.

Make sure that if you need EP then get EP rating. EP is Extreme Pressure and is normally required for Helicoid Gears (as most are).

It is really hard to find 75W90 oil. I had to use 80W90 even though my Swift needs 75W90. I don't know if this advisable or not!

I googled and it seems HP & Servo carry those. Also, I found out from another forum that Fuchs carries it: http://www.fuchsindia.com/pages/display/categorydis/55

I also spoke with GS Caltex guys and they are planning to launch the retails packaging, they currently supply to Hyundai in bulk packaging. If someone is successful in procuring it, please share.

Is it alright to use 80W-90 in place of 75W-90?

Yes, there is no problem in using 80W90 in place of 75W90.

Reason, when my Ritz was nearing 80K, MASS wasn't having the regular 75W90 oil (Shell) so they had filled-in 80W90.

No problems faced whatsoever.

Try to obtain 75W90 if you can. If you can't use 80W90. I spoke with the GS Caltex guy and he said it is better to use 75W90 since it is synthetic but if you use 80W90 change the oil at 10K km interval instead of 20K. He follows this principle with his own car. GS Caltex only supplies 75W90 in bulk since the demand from retail is very less in India due to the cost differential.

I will try to stick to 75W90 for future gear oil changes.

Mak: http://www.maklubes.com/DisplaySelec...Cat=19&SCat=53
Motul: https://www.motul.com/in/en/products...%5Brange%5D=25

Someone has mentioned a Mumbai dealer in this thread earlier.
I found the following dealers fro Gurgaon (HP) & Delhi (Motul) online:
http://www.indiamart.com/autocaretec...wheelers-miles
http://www.indiamart.com/bm-traders-...otylgear-75w90

Please update the thread if you are able to source 75W90 oil!

2011 Alto, 28K on the odo, clutch replaced due to a damaged diaphragm spring at 27.5K Kms, all service done strictly by the book and only MGPs used. Now the real challenge, during 4th service, transmission oil was replaced and ever since, winters have been a nightmare. Jammed gear box during cold mornings, grinding noise from the transmission (occasionally) until the gearbox has warmed up. The manual says gear oil should be 75W90 whereas I wont be surprised if the MASS used 80W90, yet to get this piece confirmed from them. and 80W90 AFAIK, is a conventional oil whereas 75W90 is synthetic/semi synthetic and performs better in winters. I am going to get the oil changed to 75W90 irrespective because I have had enough of the winters issue. I am looking at Bharat Petroleum's MAK Spirol EP-90 GL-4 since MAK makes good lubes and I want to stay away from private players because their products are highly prone to counterfeits. But, I want to know if what I am looking at is good or is there a better choice I have, suggestions welcomed, thanks

I'm considering either Motul Motylgear 75w90 or the Mak EP 90. Big difference in price though. Has anyone used any of these?

Hi straight6.

Iam using motylgear Technosynthese 75w90 on my swift. Its a good oil replaced it on odo reading of 9k and completed 500 kilometers after that. The noticeable difference is while shifting to reverse gear. Swift has some kind of uneasiness while shifting to reverse, that completely vanished. Cost was 600₹/L

I ended up using Mak Spirol EP 90 today as the Motul would take time to come. Its definitely better than the Mobil Mobilube GX 80w90 I was using.

Next change will be the Motylgear.

If you want full synthetic gearbox oil, buy Tutela Technyx from Fiat Showroom. Costs 600 per liter.

I changed the gearbox oil on my Cedia to Technyx and the difference is night and day. All the gears shift smoother and the resistance has decreased. Similar change was noted in both of my earlier cars. I got the same oil for a BHPian driving an i20 and his feedback was extremely positive.

Motylgear seems to be GL5, using GL5 oils in gearboxes meant to use GL4 is bad. It causes premature wear to synchro rings and is well documented.

Tutela Technyx is the only GL4+ Full Synthetic oil that is safe for our gearboxes available in India.
