XL-18 is a friction modifier, much like XL-3 for the differential. If you've ever heard the 8.8" without XL-3 in it, you'd understand XL-3's quieting/smoothing properties. The formulation was likely changed from XL-3 to work in the MT82. Heck, it may even be the same stuff in a different labeled bottle, just so customers wouldn't ask why they are using differential friction modifier in their transmission.

What color is XL-18? Does it look dark blueish/green?

Amsoil removed all MT82 recommendations from their website soon as customers starting having trouble with the transmission. Knowing it's mechanical failure, Amsoil wanted no part of it.
