Re: DOt 4 question
I have been using Valvoline synthetic in all my vehicles because it is readily available and I only need one bottle on the shelf except for the harleys with silicone fluid that my buddies have. They have to bring their own. This is the spec sheet from Ashland oil (valvoline)
A PRODUCT OF THE VALVOLINE COMPANY A DIVISION OF ASHLAND INC.
VALVOLINE SYNTHETIC DOT 3 & 4 BRAKE FLUID
• Exceeds DOT 3 & DOT 4 Specifications
• For disc, drum or ABS brake systems
• Dry boiling point exceeds 500°F
Valvoline's Synpower High Performance Brake Fluid is recommended for all ABS, drum or disc brake systems which specify either DOT 3 or DOT 4 brake fluid. Its premium low moisture formulation with a dry equilibrium reflux boiling point greater than 500°F provides superior performance even under severe conditions. As brakes generate heat, brake fluid must remain liquid, without boiling to operate properly. Valvoline Synpower High Performance Brake Fluid is compatible with conventional brake fluid and meets SAE J1703, FMVSS No. 116 and DOT 4 specifications.1. Follow vehicle manufacturer's recommendations when adding brake fluid.
2. Keep brake fluid clean and dry. Contamination with dirt, water or petroleum products may result in brake failure or costly repairs.
3. Store brake fluid only in its original container. Keep container clean and tightly closed to prevent absorption of moisture.
4. Do not refill or reuse container.
