    RedLine MTL or Mobil 1 gear oil for the 82 diesel pickup?

    Thought I had posted this earlier but some glitch apparently made sure it did not post.

    82 diesel pickup. Time to change the gear oil.

    Any real advantage to Red Line MTL over Mobil 1 gear oil of the same weight rating?

    I use Mobil 1 oil in the engine and am more than happy with results - multiple vehicles.

    Cold winters here - 20-40 below is normal for 2-4 months. Summers are warm, not hot. This summer we have had 5 days over 90 total. Generally 70's and 80's.

    Anything I should watch out for with the drain and refill?

    After a dozen and more searches checking this out I discover the MTL is the way to go for the manual transmission in the VW rather than the Mobil 1.

    Took awhile to find references on here and elsewhere.
