I have 450ES ...it calls for hypoid SAE #80 gear oil. Was wondering if SAE 80 w 90 would be ok. What do you guys all use?

I have been using Valvoline 80w-90 with no problems. I will also use Castrol Hypoi C gear oil when I can find it.

And add another to Valvoline 80w-90.. The large jug is enough for several front and rear differential flushes..

I use original honda diff oil the dealer told me it is the best oil to use in canada because of our weather. I don't know if he was BS me, but a couple of shops told me the same.As long as you don't have a locker then you need the additive.Where in Canada are you from?

Ontario ....K-W area....Hummm....What additive are you talking about....I find i get a clicking sound in the front diff when i turn and someone told me it was normal, that it was just the clutches and that but putting this additive in it you can make it dissappear....
