    Re: what oil

    Hi Mark,

    Just an idea here - if you asked someone in management here to modify your subject line to 'What Differential Oil' or 'Differential Oil Specs ?' you might get more in the way of the input that you are looking for.

    I'm interested in the answer, myself, actually.

    When I looked at the subject line, though, I figured it was a question about motor/engine oil and I don't imagine that I'm the only one to do so.

    Again - just trying to help,

    Mark,

    What does it say in your Owner's Manual under General Data ?

    Anyone else have an Owner's Manual to match Mark's vehicle ?
