Used it? What's the source and price? How does it compare to Honda branded stuff in price?

The Idemitsu H+ DW1 has been out awhile, but not too many people use it since there are many quality fluids at a better price and more availability, such as the popular Maxlife ATF, and Castrol Import IMV (as well as Castrol's own full synthetic ATF)

Marketing sounds good. However for me, price point would be needed to compare. Significantly less expensive than Honda branded DW1 and readily available to all? As I've had good results using MaxLife <$18gal, have to be at least in that range to consider.

I think one of the store brands I can get from up here also claims to be DW-1 compliant but it is made by Citgo.

It's so nice to see DW-1 users going through the torture we Volvo owners-who use Mobil3309-had to endure.

I use real Honda DW-1 on my neighbor's 2010 Accord because "I don't want to hear about it".

I guess if his trannie blew after a drain & fill with Honda fluid I'd still hear about it. Ha-Ha

ps Honda parts man cited ~$9 per qt. for DW-1. It'll be interesting to see what % off I can get by asking nicely.

Probably nothing. eEuroparts and others sell Idemitsu fluids in "repair & maintenance" kits.

In my case I want the old man to see the Honda name.

True but many of them fluids are basically just Mercron LV and have many other specs.. DW1 fluids are just for HONDA...

I'm a skeptic - I don't believe that any oil/fluid blender produces a "special" mixture for companies A, B, C, and so on. At least not your Fords, Hondas, Nissans, and so on. Package a pre-existing product into unique bottles and labels ? Yeap, going to happen every day ! Company "A" desires a fluid that meets specs x, y, z, etc, etc and reaches out to Castrol, Valvoline, etc and those companies come back and say "our product 'F' meets all of your specs and even exceeds many of them substantially".

If it were appreciably cheaper than what I can get DW1 for I'd give it a go, but the two places I can find it (Amazon and Advance Auto) it's priced at about the same as what I can get a case of DW1 for, so I haven't been tempted to try it.

Advance Auto is $7.99/each (no case or quantity break) when I'm logged in with my account or $8.99 when not logged in. They're offering free shipping on orders over $25 if you do the online option and they are also showing a 20% coupon code option.

How much do you get DW-1 for ?

On Amazon the Idemitsu is $8.95/wt, while DW-1 is $90.88/12 qts. Both Prime. So might as well buy the Honda branded stuff.

.

The coupon usually won't work for fluids, so even at $7.99 you're looking at $95 for a case of 12. I can usually ebay DW1 for $89 shipped.

If the 20% off worked, then I'd get it.
