How many grades of gear oil are there?
The two most common of these are the SAE and ISO grades, with SAE for automotive and ISO for industrial applications.
Which grade oil is used in gearbox?
For example, most modern gearboxes require a GL-4 oil, and separate differentials (where fitted) require a GL-5 oil. While they take the same form, the viscosity grades for gear oils are on a different scale than the viscosity grades for an engine oil. The viscometrics for gear oils are standardized in SAE J306.

What gear oil is thicker?
The SAE grading system indicates oil viscosity in simple numbers ranging from the thin oil (10) to the very thick oil (140 or above). Heavier weight, or higher grade oil is more viscous and therefore thicker as it flows between the gears. Light grade oil is ideal for small, fast, polished gears under a light load.
