OK, I kinda had to laugh when I saw this poll.
I'll play along and give everyone here some ammunition.

I use Fleetrite ELC.

It isn't because I think Evans was a bad choice, just look at some of my past responses.
I basically ended up running it by default.
I did not plan out my flush in advance due to other mechanical issues (HPOP took a dump) and I had 1 shot to get something in there or use the ZEREX GO-5 (same garbage as the Ford crap) that the NAPA had on hand. I have an International dealership about 5 blocks away and stopped there on the way out to fix the truck and picked up 4 gallons.
Convenience got me

88k miles on mine - still OEM fluid. I did filter a BUNCH of sand out of it in the first few thousand miles. Been fine since. I am seriously considering the ELC, just doesn't seem urgent though.
