08 Yaris transmission fluid change

I'm getting ready to change the automatic transmission fluid on my 08 Yaris.
I was going to go with the Amsoil signature series fuel-efficient ATF which is what Amsoil recommends. I was wondering if I should just use the Toyota ATF WS kind of fluid instead.

Any thoughts on this?

Thanks!

I have used ML for many years in various Toyota transmissions and power steering systems in several vehicles in my family and extended family going back many years. It's affordable and convenient. Both Walmart and Meijer carry it in stock for less than $25 a jug.
