Default Pentosin ATF 1 vs. Audi/VW ATF

Is Pentosin ATF 1 the exact same as the Audi/VW ATF sold at dealerships. The Pentosin is sold under the same part number (G052162A2) at ECS and Adirondack. The Pentosin is only $8.00 / liter vs. $16 for the Audi/VW bottle. I've compared the two oils (On a flat surface under light) and see no visible color differences...Is Audi/VW just bottling the Pentosin or are they using another manufacturer? Thanks for any input,

Default They're both using Esso LT 71141

So are a bunch of other ZF transmission-using manufacturers. There are part numbers for Jag, BMW, Land Rover, etc.

Default Re: Pentosin ATF 1 vs. Audi/VW ATF

I asked the same thing and here is the link to that thread:

The consensus is that they are the same. Audi just marks it up their customary 100% after they put their name on it.
99 A8Q 4.2 Black Winter/Summer/Xenon
65 396ci/425hp Corvette Roadster
67 383ci/450hp Camaro RS/SS Convertible
94 Corvette Convertible (GS clone)
