ATF / Dextron IID Oil Compatability

Hi:

I'm about to change the transmission oil on my Volvo D1-30, and can't find straightforward ATF/Dextron II-III oil here in Tahiti.

I CAN find Mobil ATF220, which also advertises compatability with Dextron IID.

Any expert advice on whether I can put ATF 220/Dextron IID in a transmission calling for ATF/Dextron II/III oil?

As they say in Tahitian:

Mauruuru!

If that's what the documents say, then you'll be alright!

Yes -- thanks, but then I'm worried that Dextron IID may NOT be compatible with Dextron II -- sigh .. too many variations, and I'm worried about messing things up (more).

Reax?

Can you find Mobil 1 ATF? Maybe this will answer your question: Mobile 1 Dextron 3 ATF vs Dextron VI? - Club Lexus Forums

Be careful not to mix up the words Dexron and Dextron

“Dexron" (a trademark of General Motors) is commonly misspelled/mispronounced “Dextron” (there’s no such fluid).

All Dexron fluids are "back serviceable"; meaning newer designations/specifications are suitable for older applications.

Actually DexRon is a ATF for Ford: Automatic Transmission Fluids

Quote:
If Dexron-VI does become a workhorse spec, it could complicate the ATF market in North America. Currently, a bit more than half of ATF sales by volume in the region are products that carry licenses for both Dexron-III and Ford’s specification, Mercon.

I understand back compatible, however I can only get dexron-II when the Hurth manual recommends dexron-III. Dos anybody know if -11 is OK where -III is recommended?
