You're looking for a Low Viscosity specification. Dexron VI which closely matches Tutela GI/VI.

Penrite ATF LV
Liqui Moly topTec ATF 1800
Mobil Dexron VI
Motul ATF VI
Valvoline ATF Dexron VI
etc etc etc

Here in the UK on eBay is a company called Westway lubricants. They do AW1 for the Aisin SC80 in all sizes at very reasonable costs. Any AW1 rated transmission fluid is fine, they aren't sensitive creatures as everyone is lead to believe. And they don't need to be drip fed honey from a virgin's Bossom at room temperature either. Cheap AW1 or expensive have the same viscosity and temperature parameter requirements. It's not like engine oil where there can be a huge difference in quality vs cost.

in most cases, auto manufacturers only recommend certain oils because they brokered a deal with the oil company as their default fluid supplier.

so yeah, any oil with the same rating will suit.
