Anyone have firsthand experience with/insight into the Full Synthetic Transmax ATF Multi vehicle formulation from Castrol? (It's the 1st ATF listed at the following website.

http://www.castrol.com/castrol/sectiongenericarticle.do?categoryId=9047478&contentId=7081186

It looks to be a newer ATF and I cannot even find it for sale online. Autozone is the only retailer I could find but is OOS around me. Looking closely, most of the other Castrol ATF fluids do not mention being synthetic with the exception of the ATF+4, VI (blend) and this newer fully synthetic one.

In fact, this was discussed back in October. Here's the link to that discussion as I think it will give you the info you need...

Welcome to BITOG!

Transmax Synthetic, and the ATF+4 are synthetic; all their other ATF's are syn blends.

Unfortunately, the full synthetic is rather expensive. You're better off just using Maxlife, which is also a full syn now.
