? Best prices for Allison's Transynd? Where to buy?

I posted earlier looking for best prices for synthetic Dexron III transmission fluid.

However, I guess I need to get Allison Transynd fluid, based on the inputs from quite a few sources.

I've seen and heard all kinds of prices -- many of which I find out that the shipping charges are the equalizing factor. I've heard $34 to $48 a gallon -- not counting shipping.

Can I get some sources from those of you who might have found best prices?
Thanks.

Call Western Branch Diesel. I believe there is one in your part of Virginia. In Northern Virginia the best price I was able to find was at Western Branch. I can't remember how much a gallon I pay, just remembered calling everyone in the area who might sell it and getting quotes for five 1 gallon jugs.

Look up your local Allision Transmission Service center. They don't give that stuff away and it is very expensive. But then again you don't have to change it for lots of miles.

So here's what I did:
1) I called the 3 Allison service centers in my area, per MJFZ and Triker's suggestions.

One of them had Transynd for $38/gallon.

One did NOT carry Transynd, but had Mobil Delvac (on the approved list) for $34/gal.

The third service center had "an Allison approved Trans fluid" for $30/gal -- but bring your own containers. I asked him who manufactured the fluid, and he said the container said "PetroChem", and he assured me that they ONLY use Allison approved oil since they are an Allison service center.

I struggled with the cost differential as well as the likelihood that I would ever put 30K miles on my MoHo, and then bit the bullet and went to the first one and bought the Transynd for $38. I tried the "military discount" and "Senior citizen discount" with them, but they said it normally sells for $60/gal. I said that I found it on line for $34, but the shipping brought it up to around $39.

So, that's over with.

I'd suggest what I saw some others do -- when you're at a truck stop that has it for $34 on the shelf -- buy a gallon or two and store it, just in case/or when you need some in a hurry.

Thanks to all for the decision assistance.
