Mobil 1 transmission fluid?

Anyone running Mobil 1 synthetic tranny fluid ? How is it holding up? I am trying to decide what fluid to run in my tranny. Transynd, Mobil 1 or something else. I do want to run a full synthetic fluid. 4r100

I have used Mobil 1 synthetic ATF for years. It's VERY good stuff!

I am running Mobil 1 and have been for about 40k. Im over due for a fluid change but it still looks good and doesnt smell bad. Go for it you wont be dissappointed except for the $ part,lol
