R380 oil (Canada brands)

I searched through and have not really found an answer for this.

For those of you with an R380 gearbox, what oil are you using?

MTF95 is what is suggested online. What is the North American (Canadian) equivalent

Cheers

Tim

10.52/qt on amazon
5.64/qt on hondapartsdeals

I think I remember it being in the 7 dollar range at Fairfax auto parts.

I just think its hilarious that Texaco mtf94 is specifically designed for "Rover and Honda" vehicles. What a strange mashup! I wonder what the history is on that...

Probably doesn't date back to the Honda Rover alliance in the Pre BMW days. BMW and Mini still use MTF 94 today.

A lot of Rover vehicles WERE Hondas. The Rover 827 was an Acura Legend under the skins, and the Rover 416i was an Integra or Civic underneath. Supposedly even the Freelander and CRV were originally going to share a platform, but that fell apart, though I think the appearance of the two still looks similar.

It was answered right away. Redline MTL is the best choice and easy to find.

Honda MTF is probably cheaper than Redline though.

I seriously doubt it is in Canada. Canada is a special place for buying things. Cost is really not a concern as it rarely needs to be changed.

Regardless MTL is a better choice, especially in a cold climate such as Canada.
