Default Gear Oil?

Well it's about time to change my 08 5-Speed Gear oil. Manual says 2 1/2 qts of 75w-90 GL-4 or -5.

Who's oil do you use or like?

Thanks....

2.6 quarts or 83.2 ounces.

Toyota 75w90 is good but it's expensive. Same thing for Amsoil. I settled for RedLine 75w90 GL4. No complaints.

Most everyone I know with a 1g tC is running Redline MT90 (75w90) and loves it. Buy 3 and fill until it starts dripping out of the fill hole, then cap it off (usually more than than the manual states it takes).

Thanks for the replies, do I need a new 'crush' washer?
