Royal Purple Marine Gear Oil?

Hi All,

I've heard (and experienced) great things about Royal Purple lube. I use it whenever I can't get Mobil 1. I'm changing my differential fluid soon, and I'm wondering about the Gear Oil. My owners manual calls for 80W-90, and Royal Purple only sells "High Performance Marine Gear Lube". Is this the same as their other gear oils, just a different sticker?

If they're selling it as marine grade, I would imagine that it has a different additive package than a standard gear oil. I'd study the SDS before deciding if it's a good idea to purchase it. If you find the SDS and aren't sure about it, send it to me and I'll look over it.

Sounds like the royal purple is intended to be used in the bottom end of an outboard boat engine

Yeah, it probably is. I wouldn't use it personally just because Mobil 1 can be found anywhere and easily bought online if it's not in stock locally.
