I was checking out the Aisin DW-1 on RockAuto. They are touting to be the largest transmission fluid manufacturer in the world.

Can't seem to find a full back label on multiple seller websites.

I found it strange that Rock Auto also list AC Delco Dexron IV as suitable for my 6-speed Pilot. Even giving it the ❤ symbol.

Bob the oil guy has a Blackstone report on the Austin, I haven't seen one on the BA yet. I'll try to send some in.

Only seeing Honda DW-1 Blackstone analysis, not Aisin DW-1.

I'd love to see a Blackstone analysis of 3.1 to see what percentage of it is gold.
Lol. Ya.
I thought it intresting that RockAuto shows Pentosin as a substitute for 3.1.

I do believe that even though we've seen Honda ATF evolve over the years with negative benefits (other than to Honda through price), that its glory days of "only use our expensive fluid or else..." are hopefully coming to an end.

Hopefully this image shows up. It is a comparison with Aisin and Honda.
Look under oil type and grade.

Ty.
7.3 viscosity is higher than most. Sill wondering what the back of the bottle says. They seem apprehensive to advertise this as Full Synthetic.

The Aisin DW-1 safety data sheet says its base oil is "Mineral Oil Mist." Not sure if this is considered full synthetic.

After shipping about $20 savings compared to the best price I found for a case of 12 Honda DW-1. Small savings but if just as good as oem, I figure why not.
I assume you meant you found Aisin DW-1?

See, I would have guessed on a mechanic's creeper, all swaddled in shop rags.
