Sorry John, no.John Stimson said:Isn't 10W30 viscosity in motor oil is equivalent to 70W80 viscosity in gear oil? I've run across a couple of gear oil descriptions that say a 70W80 gear oil is 10W30 motor oil with transmission-specific additives.
MTL is 70W80, so it's as least the same viscosity as the Honda MTF if the above is correct.
That would be great to know any differences. I felt a difference from old to new stock fluid making for smoother shifting.i'm going to try an put in some Redline 75w80 "MTL" in my 2006 Insight, as opposed to the stock OEM Honda tranny fluid
