I would really appreciate if any members would comment on this ATF. It is reasonably priced and I will use a lot of it. How do you feel about "suitable for use"?

Can't really provide any solid advice but what is your application? I couldn't find a single OEM license on the tech sheet. I use "multi vehicle" ATF in my Hondas but they way out of warranty and I stick to well reviewed fluids such as Maxlife and Castrol IMVF.

Thanks for the replies. I am using this ATF for drain and fills on older/out of warranty vehicles that are listed in the ChekChart. I was thinking of doing a complete fluid change on my Tundra. Thanks again.

It should work well on your Tundra and other automatics which use DEXRON type fluid.

Thanks Dave. Would you choose the Valvoline MaxLife ATF over the Sunoco? It seems it is the ATF of preference on BITOG. Again, Thank you.

1) heck of a low flashpoint, 2) Phosphorus level about 75 ppm lower than that what I would formulate a LV ATF, 3) no borate level reported, 4) No Brookfield viscosity reported, . I would pass.

204f has to be an error. I've never heard of any trans fluid with that low of a flash point. 204C maybe. Water boils at around 212f.

Check PQIA a lot have flashpoints at 200C so I agree with you.

For a set of TYPICAL PROPERTIES, it would be pretty sloppy for a company to not proof read their own properties. Just the sloppy reporting and the lack of listing of other important properties would make one not have much faith in this product.

Their website now states the flashpoint is 204C.
