Brake fluid?


Recommended Posts

According to the Bentley manual Super DOT4 is standard spec. It has a higher boiling point than DOT 4 but is compatible with DOT4 if that has been used to top up. They are poly-glycol based .

Unless you hoon everywhere or do track days it will be fine.

Dot 5 is silicone based and needs the whole system to be purged as it is incompatible with Glycol based fluids. It doesn't take on water like glycol based and has a high boiling point.

Dot 5.1 IS compatible with glycol based fluids but has higher boiling point than DOT4 .
