Actually if you're using a synthetic "just because" you might want to try some of the synthetic chrysler ATF +4 which has larger amounts of friction modifiers than "regular", then at least you're blending synthetics.
my T-350 takes 10qts ,,i have 8 Dext/mercon 1 type F and one ATF +4 in it

I'm using "practically synthetic" TDH UTF (Universal Tractor Fluid) made out of high grade high VI group 3 base stocks (Which some motor oil manufactures claim they can call synthetic these days) that has friction modifiers intended for heavy duty wet brake and wet clutch use in industrial and agricultural transmissions... plus it's only $7 a gallon

Just Marvin so far. Wile-E was doing great with fresh ATF plus a dose of Lucas, when his motor is back together, I'll probably consider it next spring. Might need to use lucas in it to color it for him (it's clear) he has some optical sensors for clutch pack modulation.

At the evil emporium of he who must not be named, ummm *cough*walmart*cough* Actually always seem to end up there for my fluids when nothing is on sale anywhere else. Supertech/tech 2000 synthetic oil is a good bargain too.
