Amazon? What, it's probably recycled chippie shop cooking oil! For years now, I have used Millers nano tech  competition engine and transmission oils. Expensive, but evaluated to per day, it's cheap.   As said by Tony, why risk an engine, gearbox diffs failure...

My T30 was tracked from 1000 miles to 21000. My average service mileage was 1,100 miles

so under 10p a mile for oil and filter.
