Valvoline Grease

Valvoline produces a number of greases for different applications. Many of them are readily available at some auto parts stores in tubes and cylinder containers/tubs.

General Multi-Purpose Grease

General purpose grease is a good all-around grease which can be used wherever special grease features (such as high temperature resistance) don't need to be too extreme.

Synthetic grease is a higher grade of general purpose grease which is also waterproof. It is recommended for CV axle joints and general heavy duty applications.

Valvoline SynPower Synthetic Grease Tube

This grease is favored for chassis lubrication due to its waterproof qualities and general quality. The Valvoline SynPower grease is also free from color dyes which dilute other greases, making it a shiny coal/off-black color. It also appears to have a grainy texture, but is smooth to contact.

What makes this grease synthetic is the base oil it is formulated from, which gives it better lubricating and endurance qualities.

Palladium Grease
