    Default "JB is correct, but to answer

    "JB is correct, but to answer your, what is the difference please, I will add this. Mercury recommends "Premium Gear Lube" for 75 hp and less, and "High Performance Gear Lube" for 75 hp and up and all stern drives. The "High Performance" has improved emulsifiers, tackifiers (yes you read that right) and extra additives to put it simply."
