Alternate solution to the factory ESSO CVT EZL 799 fluid for the GACVT16Z CVT automatic transmission.
2002-2006 R50 MINI Cooper (non-S) with automatic transmission
2005-2008 R52 MINI Cooper Convertible (non-S) with Automatic transmission
The MINI CVT fluid capacity is about 4.8 qts.
We recommend you change the CVT transmission fluid every 30-35K miles.
NOTE: MINI only recommends the MINI factory replacement fluid for their CVT transmission. These alternative CVT fluids are being offered because the oil manufacturer claims their product is compatible with the MINI factory fluid.
