If you would have looked in the archives you would have seen some post that says do not use diesel oil and you would have seen others that says diesel oil is okay however John (UK) always posts do not use Diesel oil. So I guess it is up to you and what ever the others may post and say about diesel oil. I do listen to what John (UK) says.

Yep, I found John(UK)'s info and I'm glad I did. When I was checking the archives I found the reference to not to use the diesel oil, I rechecked what I bought and it was diesel oil. We went to a Walmart today and they have 5 gal of heavy duty trans and hyd oil. I didn't have time to get into the specifics on the label. When I take back the Rotella I'll check in the mean time I will look into the G1.
Trying to figure out which oil to use is frustrating. Not just for the tractor but even for bike trans. Apparently, Gear oil and motor oil are classified differently. Say, if it calls for GL1, hypoid, lube, gear oil, etc. At least that is the way I understand it. I'm probably wrong. But I got all confused trying to but a simple quart of oil for our CR 125 transmission. Gear saver that's the one I was thinking about.

What Walmart sells isn't the GL1. It also is just a modern hydraulic oil. You can get a 5 gallon bucket of GL1 at NAPA and you can also get 2 gallon jugs of it at TSC. It's called Ford mineral oil or something like that. But that is what GL1 is, it is a straight mineral oil.
