The MTF 0063 gearbox oil should *absolutely* not be mixed with other oils, synthetic or dino. No exceptions. The procedure used to switch from any other oil to MTF 0063 involves: * Drain the old oil. * Add 1.5L of new MTF 0063 oil. * Run engine with first gear (wheels in air) for a couple of minutes, or drive a short trip. * Drain the oil. * Add 1.5L of new MTF 0063 oil. * Run engine with first gear (wheels in air) for a couple of minutes, or drive a short trip. * Drain the oil. * Add new MTF 0063 oil until oil flows out of oil level hole. -- G–ran Larsson http://www.nospam.com/saab/
