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.

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.
