5R110 Trans fluid - O'Reilly "Global ATF" ?

Just got back from my "around town adventure" trying to find some trans fluid for my truck. WHAT A PAIN IN ***! The only thing I found that might be okay to use in place of the Ford Mercon SP ATF is some stuff at O'Reillys that's called O'Reilly Global ATF.

What do you guys think? It says it will "perform" not "meet or exceed". Should I use it or wait until tomorrow and get some Mercon SP from the Ford dealer?

Check it out--> http://www.oreillylubetech.com/PDS/Global%20ATF.pdf

BTW, it's only $5.49/qt

Global is probably just DexIII.
It says it meets all those listed but I wouldn't.

Oreillys can order motorcraft mercon sp.

At only $4.59 per qt it is way cheaper than the dealer.

It's all I use.

It says it meets the LV spec right on the bottle.

It's made by Valvoline and is the same as the Valvoline Max Life that meets the LV spec. For several dollars a quart cheaper.

Stop trying to scare people guys.
