I was on a camping trip last Sept. at some music festival and my original motorcraft batteries finally gave up the ghost. The dude camping about 20 yards from me heard my solenoid clicking, fired up his rig, and came over to jump me. In the process of hooking up a set of cables from his 2 batteries to my 2, my jump box, and then letting it charge for close to 25 minutes, AND 4 failed attempts to start, before I finally fired it up, (sorry, reliving a nightmare LOL) I got to talking to him about diesels in general. He had a '96 Powerstroke and has been running it on straight used ATF for around 30K miles with no problems. Basically, he has a deal with a local shop where he goes and pumps their used ATF out into his own containers through a filter, takes it home, and filters it through a much finer filter before it goes into the truck. I think he's more of a backyard mechanic than anything else, but he told me it's probably not the best idea for my 2000. So, I guess you OBS guys are in luck...
