I went to my dealer to buy some DW-1, and even though their computer had it in stock, they could not locate any bottles of it.
So rather than turn away a customer over a stocking error, he found some old empty bottles of CVT, and had the service techs fill them up from their barrel with DW-1…and he gave me a substantial discount for the trouble.
I have had the bottles in my garage for a while now, just because I was in between drain and fills, but it has began to make me curious, is there any harm in ANY of the residual CVT left? I am pretty sure the parts manager made sure they were totally empty, but I know how some people are so specific about the Honda ATF- so now I am second guessing myself.
Is there any fear that maybe a few milliliters of CVT were in that bottle? I’m not a chemist or an engineer, so who knows. Honda has altered the ATF formula so many times over the years, I start to wonder as long as it is slick, it probably would work just fine.
