REJOICE HONDA FANS! email from Stellar Automotive Group / International Lubricants Inc.: Thank you for contacting us! Unfortunately, neither the 20902 or 23232 is recommended in Honda units due to the viscosity. We will be introducing a Honda specific formula that should be available in January. You can use our Power Steering Fluid Protectant # 20404. It is fully compatible with Honda PSF: https://www.lubegard.com/products/psf-protectant/. Please let me know if I can do anything else. Best regards happy happy happy HAPPY HOLIDAYS

some good insight with Honda Genuine Power Steering Fluid, it supposedly has very high kinematic viscosity ~ 54 cSt @ 40c, 11.3 cSt @ 100c and has different friction modifiers (zinc???)... https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/1302729/2 in theory I can just add some honey-thick Lucas Transmission Fix to regular power steering fluid to bring it up to proper viscosity and add Lubegard Red/Platinum/Black for its friction modifiers, just use this viscosity calculator and mix and mix to your delight! https://www.widman.biz/English/Calculators/Mixtures.html spank

Lubegard is focused on the aftermarket, kind of like Valvoline's MaxLife line of products... you know... for people who buy used and those that keep their vehicles way past warranty! LOL

In the past from my searching through the LubeGard site, ILI had/has a Honda P/S fluid and a P/S fluid converter/conditioner that converts any P/S fluid into Honda-like P/S fluid and the bottles mentioned HONDA on the labels. Is this still the case? Is this new to come P/S fluid for electric P/S units?

first part - yes: https://www.lubegard.com/products/psf-protectant/ viscosity: 29.8-35.2 cSt @ 40c, 7.0-8.0 cSt @ 100c since you only add 4oz of the stuff, it will barely bump up the viscosity... the Honda conversion claim is mainly due to its friction modifier additive package... second part - no: Honda Electric Power Steering systems do not use any hydraulic fluids! Although some domestic & import EPS do use hydraulics and Lubegard claims it's PS protectant helps those too...

Ah yes, OK thanks! My Altima has e-PSF but Nissan wants a bunch of $ for it. I don't have any issues with the system but, would like to top off the system or flush it entirely.

I've heard somewhere that way back in the day Honda had major problems with their steering racks, huge recalls, and that Honda Genuine Power Steering Fluid Spec-V along with its special seals solved it... Some good insights here from page 2: https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/2720114/2
