I have an opportunity to buy this fluid for less than $4 a quart. I have read the previous posts on it (and Wolfs Head which is the same fluid) and I know that its virtually impossible to have a fluid that works well in all applications. How do you think it would do in: 1) a GM 4T65E that originally called for DexIII 2) an 08' Corolla that calls for T-IV 3) an 01' Accord that calls for Honda Z-1 Would it work equally as good as the OEM, better or worse?

Its not virtually impossible. Most required specs are pathetic. Amalie, or any other universal/multivehicle ATF, will work fine in your 3 applications.

Thanks guys. I'm least concerned about the Buick because its synthetic and should work fine where Dex III is called for. I also think it would be no problem replacing T-IV in a Corolla. It's the Honda that I worry about because its problematic even with the OEM Z-1. I'll probably pick up a case since the price is so good.
