What oil are you guys running with truetrac

As the header asks what is a good oil to run with the eaton truetrac? I am told to use conventional not synthetic, what weight to go with 80w90 or 85w140? Tell me what you guys are using with good results.

That's what I'm running as well. Canadian Tire carries some Lucas products.

How much fluid did you guys end up using? I filled mine until it ran back out of the fill hole, and it was about 1/2 quart. I was expecting more like a whole quart?

I ended up using a little over a quart. I think I didn't have the hose from the pump in far enough and I must have filled up a small recess and ran over too soon. That's more about the volume I expected.
