Pat, 

Either will work. 

Amel changed the spec from 10-40 to 80-90 gear oil about 6 or 7 years ago. I found out about it when we were in Martinique from Amel Martinique.

Logically, it should have been gear oil from the beginning because it is all gears just like the bow thruster lower unit or the lower unit on an outboard engine.

Arnold, I did not remember it taking that much oil for the C-drive or my engine . I believe my engine only takes five qts., maybe my memory is failing,why not everything else is.
Thanks,
Pat

8+ Liters in the C-Drive. Buy 9 because you need 0.3 liters for the bow thruster. the following is a part of the original Amel maintenance schedule. The red-colored note and the photo of a container of 80/90 oil I added.
