That is what was in it when i bought it, and until I replace the lines with braided hoses, thats what it will stay.

Whatever the manufacturer recommends. Because the manufacturer recommends it.

It was on the shelf in the store and I needed some.

But we were boys, and boys will be boys, and so they will. To us, everything was dangerous, but what of that? Had we not been made to live forever?

It won't stop anyway, why waste money on special fluid.
These wonderful little birds are great flyers, delicious eating, excellent for training your hunting dog, and just fun to shoot,or stuff and keep around the house.  Bobwhites can be put with other types of Quail and have very large penis's.  Quail are very popular with the babes.

go to any store and say "I need brake fluid" They will hand you a bottle of dot 3.

I chose DOT 5 because it doesn't eat paint.

I had an old can (steel can) quart size of DOT3, it was kinda yellowish and a little thick.  Viscous may be the right term.  I had bought a new quart size plastic bottle and it is nearly colorless and less viscous.  When I rebuilt the MC and caliper, I used the new stuff and poured out the old stuff, but saved the can.  Don't know why, I suppose because I've had it for 20 years.

Spose the old stuff had some water in it?  It was not milky looking, just a little yellow.
