What is difference: old Motorcraft Mercon V(semi-synthetic, of course) vs newest Motorcraft Synthetic blend Mercon V?
p.s. Conoco(Motorcraft OEM) http://www.conocophillipslubricants.com/brands-products/conoco_brand/power_transmission_fluid.aspx doesn't have such synthetic blend ATF.

I believe its the same black bottle Mercon V they've been selling for a little while now, it appears to be a Chevron bottle not ConocoPhillips.

linky wouldnt open at work, but are we talking about this:

http://www.fcsdchemicalsandlubricants.com/Main/product.asp?product=Synthetic%20Blend%20MERCON%AE%20V%20Automatic%20Transmission%20and%20Power%20Steering%20Fluid&category=Transmission%20Fluid

or this:

http://www.fcsdchemicalsandlubricants.com/Main/product.asp?product=MERCON%AE%20V%20Automatic%20Transmission%20and%20Power%20Steering%20Fluid&category=Transmission%20Fluid

looks like my links fail, copy and paste. i will look at home to further dig into this with a computer that is more up to date.

The black bottle, the first one.



XT-5-DM is an outdated pic though, I think they've switched to the black bottles as well.

they are different fluids. we are supposed to use that fluid in certain year T-3650 transmissions and Terminator T56 transmissions, can also be used in the Condor TR-6060.

XT-5-QM has the exact same bottle as the one above but with a different label. It appears to be a Chevron bottle just like the one in the pic above. Different fluids but from the same supplier.
