Thought I saw it stated on here that it wasn't. Anyways I did a search around and I'm still seeing most say its not a full synthetic ATF fluid. Has anyone found any information confirming it is a full synthetic or not?

Yes, group 3 base oils are referred to as mineral oils in scientific literature, especially in Japan. Yet, they are called full synthetic for the sake of marketing in USA. So, what's your point again?

Dino juice or lobster tears, it does not matter! What matters is that it is an approved fluid for the application by the manufacturer.

Agree, but for people who like to know, the secret of WS ATF is using high VI base oil with low molecular weight VII. This way you can have both low viscosity and low wear. On the other hand, we don't know much about other fluids marketed as compatible with.
