    Seems there's a batch of Castrol Response Dot 4 brake fluid out there in 4L grey bottles - that doesn't actually contain brake fluid :shock: .

  2. :shock: Thats pretty average!

    Hopefully whatever IS inside is obviously not brake fluid so people realise...

  3. You'd hope the different viscosity or smell or colour would hopefully alert people...I wonder if Castrol is going to pay for damaged hydraulic systems if it's what I think it is (engine oil)?
    Using oils in brake systems ruins the seals in very short order, and nmeans a total strip down and replacement of all rubber components...pricey!

    Regards, Andrew.

  4. Lets just hope there isn't any brake fluid labelled as engine oil out there that they haven't discovered yet.
