I need a case of Mobil 1 synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid.
Where’s the lowest price?
And WHY don’t they offer this in jugs rather than individual quart bottles??

You talking about the stuff for Allison transmissions or for early Dexron application?

Does it have to be M1? Because Castrol has a very good synthetic ATF. Advance Auto has Castrol Full Synthetic ATF for $5/qt when you buy in multiples of 2 smile

The quart bottles are easier to pour than the big jugs

Valvoline MaxLife syn LV (Dex 6) with a viscosity (5.8 cSt).... considerably lower than the Dex 3 synthetics like Mobil 1 ATF, Amsoil ATF, Redline D4, etc which are all around 7.2-7.6 cSt. Ensure you get the right viscosity for your vehicle. On same it may not really matter. On others it could make a huge difference.

AutoZone cleared out M1 ATF a couple years ago for $4/qt. That was the last time I've seen a great deal on it.

Walmart has their synthetic LV transmission fluid for $17 a gallon right now in store.

M1 Trans fluid has never been a good value IMO.


yup

If you want the job done right......do it yourself.

This is actually for a car that would normally take Mercon V.

Castrol makes a Mercon V and it is included in the AAP sale. But my choice would still be the Castrol Full Synthetic for the same price as the (syn blend) Mercon V smile

Then I'd stick with the Mercon V which is semi-synthetic, medium viscosity and oxidizes about half the rate as a conventional Mercon or Dex 3. Plenty of good Mercon V's out there from Ford, Castrol, SuperTech, Amalie, etc. The Castrol and SuperTech (4.25/qt) both carry Mercon V mfg approvals. No reason to spend the extra bucks on Mobil 1 ATF. Just change the Mercon V within proper periodicity, which tends to be 20K to 30K miles. I stay away from the LV ATF's and Dex 6's when Mercon V, Dexron 3 are specified.

I would just get Mercon V at Walmart. It's $4.27 a quart for Supertech which actually meets Ford specs. Valvoline also sells a Mercon V, but the key there is that they say that their fluid is suitable for applications that call for Mercon V.
