RockAuto says AISIN ATFDW1 is equivalent to HCF-2, but I don't think so.

What do you guys think?

Is there a good equivalent that won't break the bank to Honda HCF-2?

HCF-2 is a CVT fluid, correct?

If so, Castrol CVT from Amazon is the best deal at $35 for a case of 6 quarts smile

Some Honda CVT's use Honda CVT, but my Accord needs Honda HCF-2.

So is the Castrol CVT a good replacement for HCF-2?

Castrol CVT Product Sheet states it is an HC-2 equivalent.
I have not used it. I did service a 2013 Accord Sport; I used Honda HC-2 from the dealer.
