Default Extra MT oil, group buy? (Western PA)

Is anyone in the western PA region interested in all chipping in to buy a 5 gallon bucket of Subaru Extra MT transmission oil?

The problem is that on the 2015+ WRX manual transmission the user manual specifies Subaru Extra MT transmission oil, but says that GL5 75W90 oil can be used instead, except that it will decrease drivability and fuel economy. Unfortunately no one carries Extra MT, and even dealerships don't seem to have it.

Extra MT appears to be 75W80 weight, which no one makes in a GL5 oil except for Subaru, and it looks as though it can be ordered directly from Subaru only in a 5 gallon bucket for about $400.

So here's my idea, if we can get 5 people together we can order a 5 gallon bucket, each take 1 gallon (the 2015+ WRX requires 3.5 quarts), and each pay roughly $80.

Here is the stuff:

Is anyone interested? I'm in Pittsburgh, so people closer to Pittsburgh make it easier to divide up the fluid.

That seems awfully pricey, we offer individual quarts of the Subaru HP 75W90 to forum members at $9.42/qt so $37.68 for 4/gallon. We would be happy to ship it, it costs $14.00 via Fed Ex to PA.

I will also note that Extra-S, the ever popular trans fluid has long been discontinued and this is the HP Gear Oil Replacement by Idemitsu. We also carry Motul and Amsoil if you would prefer one of those options.


Thanks,
Jackie
