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

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.

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