ANY other DCT fluid out there. And I mean it's cheaper by a LOT! Just over $6/qt when you buy in a case of 12.

It can also be used in regular manual and automatic transmissions too. Amalie says you can use it in almost any transmission that's not a CVT smile

Why does Nissan have 6 different automatic transition fluids than? That doesn't include their CVT transmission fluid.

Whooa, hold on there partner. repost

A DCTF has an additive package very similar to a dedicated MTF. and while it may be suitable for say a Tremac MT, it is not suitable for ATF's, regardless of Amalie's list.

Scars remind us of where we have been, but do not have to dictate where we are going.

OP, you seem to have a pattern of suggesting the least expensive aftermarket parts whenever possible. In general, this is not good practice - and this example clearly illustrates that.
