You may have a better experience.
If only it were as warm as your typical freezer here.

A few days ago I did an oil change and the Mobile One 0w20 I like to use had the consistency of honey at normal room temperature.

How would this work in a manual? AMSOIL Synthetic Chaincase & Gear Oil. It is used in snowmobiles.

The manual trans. will have an API GL rating for the proper lube.If the AMSOIL meets or exceeds that spec. then you're good to go.
Google: API Gear Specifications for more detailed info
