The New SEVERE GEAR Easy-Pack Makes Changing Gear Oil Easy

Changing gear oil in differentials and manual transmissions is critical for smooth operation and reduced maintenance. But professional mechanics and DIY enthusiasts agree: changing gear oil is a hassle. – YOu gotta see this new Squeeze Pack

The rigid conical bottle has been the industry standard for gear lube for decades.

That ’70s squeeze bottle

The source of the hassle can be found in the packaging. For more than 40 years the packaging standard has been a semi-rigid squeeze bottle with a narrow spout. This design was adequate when it was introduced due to the generous clearances and easy access to the differential and other components under your vehicle.

Vehicles, however, have grown more complex. The spaces to access components, including differentials, have shrunk. Trying to fit a rigid bottle into a confined space to reach a small fill hole is a recipe for bloody knuckles. Attempting to squeeze the fluid from the bottle into the differential is a mess, with much of the fluid ending up on you or your garage floor.

Despite these challenges, gear oil is runner-up only to grease for least attention paid among the majority of lubricant manufacturers. For most brands, this lack of focus is likely due to low gear oil sales.

Enthusiast experiences drive innovation

The AMSOIL brand is focused on providing enthusiasts and independent shop owners with the next level in protection. In addition to developing innovative ways to pack more protection into our products, we also focus on packaging innovations.

Many who work at AMSOIL are enthusiasts or DIYers. In fact, a weekend attempt to change gear oil in his truck led our gear-oil product engineer on a search for a better way to package gear oil. The gear-oil pump he had on hand didn’t work. His own attempts to engineer a Rube Goldberg machine of sorts to direct gear lube into the differential didn’t work.

The frustration and hassle led him to a single thought: there has to be a better way. Squeeze Pack!

The SEVERE GEAR easy-pack eliminates the hassles of changing gear lube.

Flexibility eliminates hassle and waste

The result of this effort is the new AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® easy-pack. The flexible package bends around obstacles so you can easily reach fill holes. This flexibility also allows you to squeeze all of the gear lube into the differential. That way you don’t have to buy extra gear lube just to account for the waste inherent to rigid bottles.

The industrial-strength packaging allows the easy-pack to withstand drops, abrasions and extreme pressure, as shown in the video below. The result is packaging that saves professional mechanics and enthusiast’s time, money, hassle and mess.
