Haven't hauled anything with either though.
I don't think it's filled very often. Check and see what the interval is for topping up. Most lube shops where I am carry it, and you wouldn't even have to do it yourself. I have no idea what the cost would be. I don't know of anyone who has had to buy any fluid. Personally, it would not deter me. I have a brand preference and I stick to what I know so this would not be a deal breaker for me. Make a few calls and see what costs are involved.
