Poking around on reddit, bobistheoilguy, and now here. It seems this is everyone's go to MTF.

Seems like if you stay with something spec'd GL-4 and 75w80, you'll be fine. I actually already purchased some MTL for $15/quart. I think you only need 2 quarts but I bought 3 in case. Did I make the right choice?

Yes. I use it and it is a great product. For the gen 3 you only need 1.8 qts or so.

I thought it was under 2qts but I bought 3 because some online were claiming just over 2qt and I didn't want to be short since I'm ordering it and not picking it up at a store.
