Got mine from my 'ex' Rover dealer.

Land Rover dealers stock it as some Freelanders use MTF-94.

Land-Rover's MTF94 is about that, but for 5L!

Very, very unlikely. That's generic gear oil that's been around for donkey's years.

Is mtf94 that much better then?
My local factor said that they stopped MTF94 and now tell everyone to use this as it does the same job...

Land Rover, MTF, go. Tell your motor factors to STFU.

Do not use 75w80 oil in later spec PG1 gearboxes! It will seriously shorten the life of the 'box.

Any 'box for which MTF 94 was specified should only be filled with MTF94. Topping up with a small quantity of 75w80 should be okay.

IIRC MTF94 has friction aditives to look after the torsen diff.

There are some high performance gear oils that are said (and most likely do) as good a job as '94.

Carlube are budget lubes IMO.

MTF-94 is very similar to 10w40 except it has certain properties and additives to prolong gearbox life.

I was gonna add that I thought MTF94 was 10w/40 not 75w/80. I have used 10w/40 semi synth in the gearbox. Needs to be changed at about 30K, but not had a problem using it.

Yes 10/40, this is what is specified on the Maestro with the first breed of PG1 gearbox. MTF94 just has some jucier additives in it.
