We recently purchased a 1992 Safari Diesel Pusher RV with only 90k miles. Cummins 8.3. Original spec fluid for the Allison MT643 Transmission was DEXRON III. New spec for fluid is TES-295. I understand full well that Allison has a list of their tested and approved fluids, but I'm not asking about those. I am looking for an economical alternative that meets the TES-295 standard and that I can used to flush out the old fluid in my tranny for a short period prior to doing a full change out to Transynd. Has anyone heard of Bio-synxtra Plus ATF Fluid from Renewable Lubrication?

https://www.amazon.com/Renewable-Lubrica...Bio-synxtra+atf

It is very economically priced, is NOT full synthetic, but looks to be a reasonable short term (6 months ish) that could be used to aid removal of the probably 20 year old fluid that is currently in there. From what little I can find about most of their products they are mostly soy based... But the reviews that I have read on their motor oils have been very positive.

Money is very tight, I need this RV road worthy soon, and flushing with this product would save some 150 bucks.

I'm not looking for some lecture about how I can only trust my Allison with a full pedigree, certified, licensed, cream of the crop fluid. I just need something that will work for my situation, is better than 20 year old Dexron III in a 26 year old transmission, and won't break my wallet.

Thanks.

It should work just fine for that purpose.

Thanks for the reply. Have you ever heard any reason to think negative of any of their products? I just wish that I could find some more info around the interwebs. If I can get a good deal on a locally sourced fluid I will go that route, but the price of the bio-synxtra is to nice to turn my nose up at it.

Nothing negative ever heard about them.

The base oils are a combination of bio esters of agricultural products and PAO.

The viscosity of this fluid is similar to fluids such as DexronIII(H), TES-295, and Mercon.
