I did a D&F on my 2012 Mazda3 (Skyactiv) at 60,000 miles. It is very light blue out of the bottle, but it changes to a light straw color in short order. The stuff that came out was very clean and didn't stink. I don't really think it needs to be changed very often, if at all. You can flame me all you want for saying that. The transmission runs quite cool. I didn't drop the pan because I saw a thread on a Mazda site that told of how much trouble it was to scrape off the gasket compound. I might be enticed to change the filter if I keep the car past 150,000 miles. It has pleated media inside it. FZ is an ultra low viscosity synthetic fluid formulated specifically for the Skyactiv Drive units. I have found mine to be flawless.

I wonder whether this aftermarket fluid would analyze (in a simple UOA) similar to, or quite different from, Mazda's FZ ATF. I'm thinking here of the significant difference between Honda's Z-1 and DW-1 vs. the Idemitsu fluid that claims to be specifically for DW-1 replacement.

The additive package of Honda ATF is so different than most ATF's that it is easy to identify the differences. For other fluids, at least in a typical VOA, the additive composition will appear quite similar so it is much harder to make a determination.

How much does this new FZ analog cost? I haven't priced the OEM stuff since about four years ago. I paid $60 for four quarts, delivered. The D&F used about 3.5 quarts.

That is unknown until we see VOAs on both Mazda FZ and this new fluid. :-)
