Shell Spirax ASX

Feel confident in Spirax ASX 75W-90
Shell Spirax ASX 75W-90 represents leading lubricant technology. Improved over years of field-testing and laboratory innovations, it is specially-formulated with a combination of synthetic base oils and unique additives to provide superb drive train performance. Exceptional shear stability and outstanding oxidation resistance contribute to its premium performance characteristics.

Fuel efficiency and longer oil drain interval
Excellent frictional properties reduce power loss and cut operational temperatures, resulting in increased mechanical efficiency. This combination of characteristics translates into lower fuel costs for your business and extended oil drain intervals.

Longer oil life
Spirax ASX 75W-90 demonstrates high shear stability in field-testing. This contributes to extended oil life and durability, maximizes the life of your components and extends oil drain intervals.

Any good 75w90 gear oil will work. Full synthetics are ok but dont have the friction modifiers in them that help the cone clutch hold.
