Axle and Manual Transmission Lubricants
This SAE Information Report was prepared by the SAE Fuels and Lubricants Technical Committee for two purposes: (a) to assist the users of automotive equipment in the selection of axle and manual transmission lubricants for field use, and (b) to promote a uniform practice for use by marketers of lubricants and by equipment builders in identifying and recommending these lubricants by a service designation.
Rationale: Vehicle manufacturers, lubricant suppliers, additive companies, and users all reference specifications to define the lubricant for a given axle or manual transmission. This document catalogs these specifications and provides valuable information about these lubricants.
Also known as: SAE J 308
