I don't want to buy transmission fluid from dealership. What kind ATF fluid we can use? Did anyone here try using other fluid and had no problem?

Gearbox on civicforums isnt a fan of the new DW1 fluid and says it will be worse for the Honda trannys over time than Z1 because its thinner and will be even thinner when used in hot weather making the wear on the gears faster because fluid wont be able to stay in between the gears.
