I am currently using 3 different kinds of grease...I am looking to consolidate to a single type of grease for all applications. I need a grease for the following purposes: - chassis/u-joint lube - marine wheel bearings - disc brake wheel bearings I am wondering if Green grease would fit the mold or if it a bunch of hype? OHHH one more thing, I need to be able to buy the same grease in a tub & a tube...It looks like green grease is not available in a small tub??? If not, then name ne a good grease that I can get both ways.

I couldn't find out if green grease is EP rated or if it has moly. Basically, it might be a good grease but not for all applications. Plenty of good greases available at your local stores.

I sent an email to greengrease and it does not have moly. So, I can't use it on my slip/shaft joints that require 3% moly. But, it should work great in ujoints and wheel bearings. Timken 80+ 554F dropping point NLGI2 4 ball EP 800KG+ Both of the locally sourced valvoline's durablend and synpower have the moly. Can't go wrong with crc/stalube options either. http://greengrease.net/PDF/ggfactsheet.pdf http://valvoline.com/pdf/SynPower_Grease.pdf http://valvoline.com/pdf/Durablend_Grease.pdf http://www.crcindustries.com/hd/content/prod_detail.aspx?PN=SL3330&S=N http://www.crcindustries.com/hd/content/prod_detail.aspx?PN=SL3110&S=N http://www.mobil.com/USA-English/Lubes/PDS/GLXXENGRSMOMobil_1_Synthetic_Grease.asp

I use Magnalube-G in the grease gun tubes. It is available in many different forms. I got a case of it and some small tubes foe firearms and a pound can also. We used it at work on the German made Peeners. Moly ran 30 days before the bearings went out. Magnalube-G was still going strong 6 months later. They set Preventive maintence at 6 months. Never had another problem. It took me a while to find it at the right price. Check it out here. http://www.magnalube.com/magnalubeg.html I use it in everything that needs to be greased that I got. Not waterproof but water resistant. Extreme Pressure rated. Ed

I bought a tube of the Green Grease a while back just to check it out. It is quite tacky and I wouldn't put it in a wheel bearing. Might be OK for other things.

wow thanks for the info (and you too Tempest), that is a pretty compelling story on the Magnalube.
