    Just wondering... If they all meet MB236.6 does it mean they will mix ok?
    I know my trans was filled with febi fluid when the fluid was last all changed, but when the multi plug leaked I topped it up with what was around (and which met mb236.6) which was Comma MV ATF Dextron III. Trans seems to be fine 20,000 miles later... anyone had any issues mixing different brands?
