    I've been using Amsoil but thinking of switching to another brand due to ease of finding it readily.

    I was swapping my P/S fluid on my last car with Lucas, shortly after my P/S system started leaking. Unsure if it would've been different if I used what the dealer recommended. For now on I'm only using dealer specified.
