Mercon is discontinued. You can still find aftermarket Dex III, Dex/Merc, multi-vehicle ATF. Ford recommends Mercon V.

Mercon V is still made.

Mercon LV is not backwards compatible. Do not use for Mercon or Mercon V.

That's not true. DO NOT use MERCON LV where MERCON V is required. It won't be pretty.
