Those are suggested treat rates for the example fluids. It doesn't mean you have to use those fluids. What they don't tell you is how much VII you need to adjust to the proper viscosity. Lubrizol supplies Amsoil, Valvoline, and a host of other blenders. CVT fluids differ from step-shift and DCT transmissions in that the important factor in friction modification is traction coefficients.

Way off topic - my apologies Dick in Falls Church? Welcome back! Have I missed something or gave you been MIA for a while?

Lubrizol does not make an additive for CVTs that is an aftermarket product, correct? They are simply involved in the initial fluid formulation?

Lubrizol only makes the PI (additive) package for commercial sales.
