    I use Red Line MT90 with good luck. Truck from 122 degrees in Death Valley to 46 below zero here in North Dakota. The cold shifting with the synthetic is a lot easier than with the regular gear oil.

    Initially typed MTL but when I checked it is the MT90.

    Both will work. .

    In the UK you might be able to get away with a more lenient oil. As I recall 75W90 is what the tranny requires.

    I used this quite successfully
