    Is it o.k. to use a good quality brand of transmission fluid other than Toyota. Thanks. I've been busy driving a city bus.

    As a Toyota Master Tech, I'll tell you no. I am certain many others will disagree. World Standard Fluid is its own monster. Do not use anything other than Toyota World Standard Fluid. (assuming we're talking about your 2013 Tundra)

    You'll probably find a bunch of people who will say that they have some Amsoil fluid or something else they use and that WS is crap and you shouldn't use it and that it will break your truck and make your bald. Is WS fluid crap? Who knows! In my Tacoma and Tundra I followed what the engineers said and used WS fluid. Maybe I have bought into their conspiracy, maybe not. Maybe I am a sucker, but I'll just use what the engineers say should go in there.

    Price out your fluid on Amazon and at the dealership. I have bought 12 L on Amazon before for a better (but not way better) price than the dealership.

    Thanks, That is the route I'll go. My wife and I rv out in some pretty desolated areas so the safest way is the only way.
