Difference between AGL vs. AGL Plus and can you mix them?

Hey All,

I just recently started changing the fluids on my 09 RZR 800 and I ran out of AGL Plus fluid when I was filling up the tranny. I ordered what I thought was more AGL Plus fluid off eBay and they ended up sending me just AGL. The image shows AGL fluid, but everything else in the auction said AGL Plus including the description.

What are the differences between the two fluids and would it be an issue if I mixed the two together?

I haven't called the dealer who was selling it on eBay yet because I figured I would see if it was even a big deal or not.

Thanks in advance for your help.

They both are synthetic gear lube. Probably same stuff, just different package. The MSDS are here for both

I was told by the dealer: They are interchangeable...viscosity/applications are the same, he thought they had added corrosion modifiers to the plus but he felt it was more a marketing ploy. (Like "New and improved Tide"..basically same crap with a different pour spout etc.) I use a vacuum pump to remove old fluid on changes and in the demand drive unit (front diff) it leaves an ounce or so in the bottom. This means I have mixed the two and my drive works fine.
