Post by toanogreen »



Other than Honda 80w90 gear oil, are there other brands that can be used on an 1800?
Thanks

I use synthetic gear lube. No, it doesn't have to be from Honda.

Mobil 1 or any other brand.
Just be sure to change it every other engine oil change to help make the final drive last longer.
