Would there be any difference between the Universal ATF or the Torqueshift ATF fluids. Anyone use either of these two?

Flushed my tranny & rear end, changed the filter and used all Amsoil fluids for the first time and even the wife noticed a difference from the passenger seat. Towed a 5th wheel and noticed a very slight improvement in MPG's but everything shifted smoother. Wasn't sure how I would like the Amsoil stuff but it seems to be as good as everyone here says.
