    When I was living up in Sherman, TX. I ran some roale purple in the rear
    diff. went up to Clayton OK. and got some water in, returned to TX. went
    wheeling in the red river/Lake texoma area, and got some more water in there
    parked it for a few weeks, tried to get the rear nice and hot to evaporate
    the water, and the synthetic, just would not get hot. :)
    Opened up for an inspection(drain refill) sure enought, milkshake !

    So for wheeling not worth it, :frown1: for 99.9% street use go for it. :)

    Water will never evaporate out of oil. Especial when it gets all mixed in. Synthetic doesn't turn to sludge a easy. But if you want sludge in you diff. Go for it.
