At the parts house last evening, I was 90w shopping. Saw plenty of dino, synthetic and blends. Some were clearly marked "hypoid" others clearly "hypoid, suitable for limited slip". In the course of my reading, I encountered a number of gera oils that were parafin based as well. In light of my disdain for parafin based oils, I chose a Valvolin all petrolium based oil.
