    I want to try Mobile 1 in my 99 Fisher SEHP. No problems with regular ATF but it holds only 2 1/2 qts. and the oil is suposed to be the "cat's meow" and would love to spoil my rig.
    I've been running Dextron III,Mercron ATF as told by Fisher and my dealer since 1999. No problems.

    I have Mobile 1 in my Auto trans and transfer case now.

    I did a search but lots of posts on other equipment or some were old posts.

    Given the SEHP packs out there now I'd like to hear from you guiys who have been running Mobile 1 ATF and how it performs or doesn't.

    ran it with no problems. dont think you will see any difference except maybe a bit better flow when really cold.

    I talked to a Fisher tech at Fisher and they said Dextron III is fine. That's all I've used since 99. Go figure.

    Mobile I is Dextron III and Mercron ATF.

    I used Quaker State syntheic Dextron 3 last year in my Fisher V-plow, with good results, it's much faster at cold temps then regular Dextron 3. It's about the same as Fisher oil for speed, here it's a little cheaper then Fisher fluid.

    The Magnuson Moss Warranty Act is why they can't insist on using their fluid. In order to do that they would have to provide the product for free.
