Use AMSOIL. Much better product.

Yes, it does emulsify.

Some good info on merc hp oil, most think it is fully sythetic...apparently its not.

From another site:
"I did some more digging and appears that the High Performance miracle green fluid is nothing more or nothing less than overpriced pseudosynthetic, group 3, GL-5 gear oil.

Proof:

1. MSDS states that the base oil is Refined Petroleum. This is just dino oil. The CAS number provided (64742-01-4) is for the solvent treated and/or hydrocracked oil also know as pseudosynthetic (and known in Europe as semisynthetic) or group 3."

and

Update:
I found more info on CAS 64742-01-4 and guess what. It's not group 3. The High-Performance is a plain dino oil with probably solid additive package (Molybden?). Shouldn't be surprising though as Merc never claimed it being synthetic.
The plot thickens.

Reference on CAS 64742-01-4:
