I guess a good bad gear change and grind is alot worse than some half decent oil. I think you have come to the right conclusion.

Believe me some big oil chains say gb lubricants up newcastle sell it to trade you can take your own container its same as you get in smaller 5l containers just they sell it cheap as they buy it by the 45 gallon drums or tanker full. Look into all sorts of products a lot are made in the same factory and re labelled for different stores and price can be double or treble
Now i am not back tracking engine oil yes well worth paying more but i can see no difference in exactly whats in the right cheaper box oil to most more expensive.
All must meet a certain standard both engine and box oils but soon as you start paying more for engine oil you see and read the differences are big but box oil i always belived was very similar properties between the price range
Morris lubricants are much like Miller oils as both UK companies that specialise in oil engineering, Morris very well known in agriculture & heavy machinary & millers more so in performance car.@shroom wrote:Yes I agree but Its the re branding of things that I dont like, yes good engineering costs but so does marketing it as super duper track day awsomeness.
China is a different matter the crap they churn out is just that, they dont care about legal matters such as copyright, trade marks and do so at their pleasure lol all the more reason to plague the west with the carrot on the stick ie cheap imports.
I live local to Morris lubricants and always used them in the £250,000 plus combines and tractors which were running close to 20 hours a day full choke. I dont know anything about it really but just as you said going down to the local petrol station is not going to get you a decent oil but the motorsport price tag is also stupid.
mt90 is good & about £15+ a litre I expect.@Indy wrote:Hi bill I got a gl4 in my box mt90 is expensive but if you are going to do it make sure u do it properly my box took 4l in my diff I'm running Fuchs gl5 and transfer box
