Absolutley correct. The new fluids for the allisons (tes295) is probably the best atf on the market today. But at 18 bucks a gallon for dex/merc vs. 40 bucks per gallon for something that is tes295 certified I don't find the value there on a short mile vehicle.

Synthetics are great, but not when the vehicles sits more often then it moves, which is what most skoolies are. In that case, I think it's money better left in your pocket.

Maybe the single most overlooked aspect of tranny fluids is...temperature. I hear people talking about their fluid routinely hitting 300 climbing a hill which they apparently consider OK. Take a look at the chart below to get an idea of just how important maintaining proper cooling of transmission fluid really is.

Transmission temperature/failure chart.
