Havoline® LS Gear Lubricant

Havoline® Gear Oil

A high quality gear lubricant designed to protect the differential, transfer case and oil-lubricated steering axle wheel bearings. Performs in all weather and high-stress operating conditions.


  • Controlled inventory costs
    One gear lubricant for both conventional and limited slip differentials. Simplified inventory can help save money, space, and handling time.
  • Optimal gear life
    Extreme pressure properties protect hypoid and other types of gears from scuffing and wear.
  • Long lubricant life
    Outstanding thermal and oxidation stability allow high temperature operation with long lubricant life.


Havoline LS Gear Lubricant is recommended for service fill and top-off of all limited slip differentials. It is recommended for differentials where manufacturers’ specify API GL-5 gear lubricants plus supplemental limited slip additive.

Havoline LS Gear Lubricant provides excellent performance in conventional automotive gear oil applications requiring API GL-5 or MT-1 performance levels, including:

• Differentials calling for this viscosity grade

• Axles in buses and heavy duty trucks where gear lubricants are recommended

• Four-wheel drive transfer cases

• Applications where a “”multipurpose”” gear lubricant or an API Service Classification GL-5 is required.

• Havoline® LS Gear Lubricant can also be used in offhighway wheel loader axles equipped with wet brakes. It is recommended for small and medium size loaders made by Hitachi and Kawasaki. This fluid can be a good choice for applications requiring friction modification (anti-chatter) with a level of gear protection much higher than that provided by typical API GL-4 tractor fluids.

Havoline LS Gear Lubricant meets or exceeds the performance requirements of API Service Categories MT-1 and GL-5.

Note: Havoline LS Gear Lubricant is designed for full refill of all limited slip differentials. However, there may be instances when axle chatter occurs. If so, it is acceptable to add at least 3% by volume of aftermarket limited slip top treat additive (4 ounces of top treat per gallon of lubricant).
