Using their new HiTech 3488 additive system, Afton claims it is possible to have one ATF fluid be compatible for both CVT's and traditional automatic transmissions. Currently, CVT fluids cannot be used in conventional automatics due to the significant differences in the friction modifiers.
Is this Afton product an example of a significant engineering breakthrough, or is this yet another example that application-specific ATF's are a dated concept?
