I see the GT uses the expensive stuff with the friction modifier already in it. What is called for in the V6 and how much does it take? Can I use Mobil 1 gear oil? No mention of specs in the owners manual of course.

Our V6's uses any standard gear lube.
It takes about a liter and a half.
Don't see any problem with Mobil 1 as long as its the correct weight.
GM dealer I went to used Castrol synthetic 75/90 gear lube.

My GM trained mechanic son says it would work but he tries to stay as close to OEM as possible when changing these fluids.

For what it's worth, awhile ago contacted Mobile 1 inquiring if their differential fluid contains friction modifiers that meet General Motors qualifications for carbon-lined differential's and... crickets.
