Oddly they dont list the 3G as one of the applications for it, although it says includes AW6A-EL in the description
There is no such thing as maintenance-free fluid. I will take this wikipedia quote with a grain of salt.

seriously. are you really going to be shifting into Neutral and then Drive at every stoplight? that's just going to wear out your solenoids faster, effectively negating any sort of benefits. The transmission was designed to stay in Drive while driving.
