I run Mobilube 1 in my CavT 6 speed box and rear diff.
I bought mine from a BP station, they stock the mobilube stuff in most stations.
Not sure if mine was the same spec as Richie's, but it may be cheaper to check BP first.
I use Mobil1 Motorsport (15/50W) in the engine. I found the regular Mobil1 from the BP station a bit too thin. I am always carefull with a cold engine...
Anyone any good reports about another brand of 15/50W fully synthetic?

Is this the one marketed for motorcycles? (supposedly with wet-clutch anti-slip additives, yeah right!)

I fail to follow this logic. I've heard this before and I don't get it.
People claim to use thicker oil for better protection when the engine is cold.
In fact you need THINNER oil for this purpose. Mobil1 0w40 is ideal for cold weather protection and cold starts. 0w means that it emulates viscosity of 0 (thinner) in the Winter (the 'w')
Using 75w90 will not flow well, because in the winter it will only go down to 75 viscosity (too thick for an engine, but fine for a gearbox)
