What type of Brake Fluid do you use?

I know it should be DOT 4+ ,but what kind do you use?

I don't want to go pick up a bottle at the deal & get robbed.

Suggestions or recommendations?

RE: What type of Brake Fluid do you use?

To some extent it depends upon your driving habits, if you'll be a track hound get better fluid. Just for the heck of it I got some ATE Supergold from www.autohausaz.com, that and their Superblue racing formula are about $13 a liter, a little more expensive than some you'll find but hey, it's my brakes and it's not like you use it all the time. Plus I was buying other stuff, so shipping was free. :)

Take care and enjoy the ride,
Greg

Use a good DOT4 like Catrol LMA ot Havoline Synthetic. Don't use DOT5.
