This a waste of money (using syn) because syn gear oil gets dirty and
wet just as easy as dino oil and you can change axle oil 3 or 4 time
for the price of one syn change and frequent changes is what keeps
axles and gear cases alive in harsh environemnts, not they type of oil
you use. In a engine it is dbateable because it is filtered but in a
closed axle or gear case it need to be changed regularly if you want
long service life in harsh conditions.
