Has anyone tried this oil for an b8speed gearbox? It’s cheaper than my engine oil (£5/lit). there are more than one listening at this price on the Bay. Like This. ZF lifeguard 8 is expensive at around £200 considering a used low mileage working gearbox is about £400 delivered or an overhaul kit costs £200. I have used egr cleaner, brake cleaner, engine flush, etc. from this brand and I was happy with the quality.

Mannol is a good quality brand , and i use it for my standard ATF ,

HOWEVER

i have gone for original ZF 8 speed box oil and filter for my gearbox ( ebay kit for £235 ), and a lot less work than swapping out boxes that you would have to put new fluid and filter sump tray in anyway

just my opinion

Thanks. I might give it a go for £40. If behaviour changed I will go for ZF oil. New filter can stay there. I had to remove the box for engine rebuilt in situ. It’s fairly straight forward job. I know it’s not as quick as an oil/filter change. But it could be done over weekend.
