With a GS4? EASY! :)

BEST car I have ever had. I have driven over 750k miles in my life time, and this is by far the best car I have ever had or driven.

My wife's RX is in the 16 mpg (~14.5 L/100KM) range right now with the low temps 5-15F (-15C to -5C)

Correct, Dexron III. Don't use T4, WS, Dexron VI or Power Steering Fluid.
