In Japan, the share of automobiles equipped with continuously variable transmissions (CVTs) has reached five percent of all automatic transmission vehicles, and that share is continuing to increase. Where automatic transmissions use fluid torque converters, CVTs use metal belts and pulleys to transmit the engine’s power. Thanks to their outstanding power transmission ratios and better fuel-economy performance than regular automatic transmissions, many car makers have been adopting CVTs in more and more models.

Blended from high-performance base oils and carefully selected additives, including friction modifiers, detergent-dispersants, oxidation inhibitors, viscosity index improvers, corrosion inhibitors, and defoaming agents, ENEOS CVT Fluid is a well-balanced fluid specially designed for automobiles with metal-belt CVTs.

Special Features

Excellent Metal Friction Characteristics 
CVTs use metal belts and pulleys in place of the torque converters used in regular automatic transmissions, and it is the friction between those belts and pulleys that conveys the power. Because ENEOS CVT Fluid is made from a well-balanced blend of metallic detergents, ashless dispersants, extreme-pressure agents, friction modifiers, and other additives, it prevents wear at the metal-metal contact points on the belts and pulleys.

Compatible with All Types of Automobiles with Metal-Belt CVTs
CVT fluids require good torque transfer capacity between metal components as well as good antishudder performance, but improving the antishudder performance usually requires a sacrifice in the metal-metal torque transfer. Now JX Nippon Oil & Energy USA, Inc. has developed new technology for providing a high level of both torque transfer and antishudder. ENEOS CVT Fluid performs superbly in both areas in the metal-belt CVT vehicles made by all manufacturers.

Top-Class Transmission Fluid Performance
The well-balanced blend of high-performance base oils and carefully selected additives used in ENEOS CVT Fluid ensure superior performance in every area required of transmission fluid, including low-temperature flow properties, oxidation stability, antiwear, shear stability, material compatibility, and foaming prevention.


ENEOS CVT Fluid can be used in metal-belt type CVTs including those built by Nissan, Honda, and Mitsubishi. Compatibility information on ENEOS CVT Fluid in reference to other CVT fluids in the market is listed in the chart below.

ENEOS CVT Fluid is specifically designed to be used in Continuously Variable Transmissions.  CVT’s are significantly different from more common Automatic Transmissions. ENEOS CVT is green. Typical ATF is red.

Initial offering of ENEOS CVT Fluid imported from Japan was Red.  This product is now produced in the US and green in color to differentiate it from typical ATF’s. There may still be some Red ENEOS CVT Fluid remaining in the market from the discontinued importation of ENEOS CVT Fluid. The change is only in the color dye, and the formulation and the compatibility of both the current and discontinued CVT fluids are identical.

ENEOS CVT Fluid meets the performance requirements of transmissions requiring Nissan NS-2, Nissan NS-1, Mitsubishi CVT Fluid J1, Honda CVT Fluid and other metal belt CV transmissions.
