    Fiesta mk3 Gearbox

    Hi guys.
    I have Fiesta mk3 1.1 HCS with carb
    I had to remove halfshafts so now I have to change an oil in gearbox.

    What oil do you recommend?
    My local Ford shop don't have currently Ford oil and they offer me 80W Valvoline oil.
    And also I can have Mobil mineral oil by similar price.
    Mobil synthethic oil (75W-90) is around double price than that mineral so I won't take it.

    I need your experiences.

    For example, my brother changed oil on Skoda Felicia and put inside 90w oil - now he have problems with shifting when cold.
