    I hope this blog can be a guide or reference to all Honda owners and are able to choose the quality fluids and lubricants for their beloved Honda's. My faith in these products is blind I have used them for over 18 years and they have never ever disappointed. A Honda R&D man once told me if you buy a Honda genuine lubricant and fluid you can be rest assured that product has undergone so many test which are more stringent than any the standard industry practices. In his word own word “if it’s got the Honda name on it trust it” I can vividly recall that conversation in 1998 over a cup of coffee and is still fresh in my memory.

    Thanks Ichiban, you really have blinded me with science, I am still confused, can I still buy ATF-Z1 as Honda says it the correct fluid to use, if not what is the replacement fluid from Honda and also what amount is correct for fluid change....I do appreciate your help..Thomas
