Castrol, 3 quarts every 15k miles, $5 a quart.

95 Civic, RIP, 263k miles
94 Civic, DD, 145k miles
91 Civic, 261k miles

669k miles without any automatic tranny issues, think about it.

Well I'll test my auto trans on amsoil atf to get some sort of comparison. Previously used jdm d15b trans from jdmtigerjapanese had 35,000mi on it before using amsoil atf, now it has only 55,000 miles, so Bone has me beat.
