Default Black lithium grease weight equivalent

Anyone care to venture a guess at the weight equivalent of diff oil for black lithium grease? I'm trying to find something to put in my front gear diff for usgt, was running 500k but that was from a fellow racer. Highest I have is 100k, and forgot to add any to my last order.

Black lithium grease and diff oil are different in how they will act dynamically. The faster you spin a diff with black grease the lower effective weight the grease has, while the silicone oil will try to be more linear.

in short, you cant really say it has a weight equivalent
