I ran the new GL 4/GL 5 oil in my 66 beetle for about 6-8 years with
no long term adverse effects. However the synchros did not work very
well, I thought they were worn. Two years ago I put in GL4 synthetic
and the improvement was immediate and dramatic. Shifting is much
smoother as the synchros are now working properly. It seems GL5 is
too slippery for the synchros to work.
