I knew the Maxlife ATF was synthetic but I had no idea the regular Multi ATF was 100% Syn.

Valvoline Import Multi-Vehicle Automatic Transmission Fluid

For Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Hyundai/KIA and other import vehicles

Full synthetic fluid
Reduces varnish and sludge formation
Protects against wear
Improves and maintains smooth shifting over long service intervals
Provides excellent flow properties at low temperatures and greater film protection at high temperatures

Thanks for sharing.

Does the label specifically call out compatibility or replacement for oem fluids like for ex. Honda Z1 or DW1?

Looks like the local Walmart does not carry it. Anyone knows of low cost sources?

I think the "organic" ester stuff was the best - but alas not underwater great mammal friendly.

Castrol multi is also full Syn. Maybe they all are.

Well, when they say full synthetic they mean it contains majority GroupIII, minor GroupIV, and minor GroupV components.
