You asked: "Hi,
Does the Pentosin 11s supercede the 7.1? Can I use the 7.1 in my 91 Audi 200
TQ 20V? I have checked online and I get both as part # G 002 000 as called
Hi, John. The part numbers are NOT the same. 11s has an "A" suffix.
As always, every digit or number of a part number is significant,
sometimes indicating a supercession, sometimes a color, and sometimes a
different part. There's ALWAYS a reason. Leaving part of the number
off can result in confusion, or a mechanical problem I recently ran
across a VW output shaft seal with an "A" suffix that fit the case fine,
and puked oil all over the brand new clutch. Late mainshaft seal, early
To answer your question, yes, you can use 11s in a 7.1 designed car, but
you "shouldn't" use 7.1 in a car designed to use 11s. For the responder
with the '91 200, 11s is the original fluid, IIRC.
