How do you find out how much the car needs or is pretty much the same for all cars , anyone know ? They have the 5 litre of this at £17 less 30% so about £12.00 .
Is shelf life an issue once its been opened as well or does it not degrade over time ?

i love the turkey baster idea.
any hack to do the brake lines without a full brake bleed procedure, doesn't need to be perfect... just good enough.
local garage was charging me 50 quid for a brake bleed, i thought is was expensive.
would love a hack to get 80 percent there..

It's the brake fluid that's in the brake lines that is doing the work, changing the fluid in the reservoir will have very little impact.

On my old Golf (2001 reg), the car was serviced yearly with the brake fluid scheduled to be changed every 2yrs.

From memory, I used to buy a 1 litre bottle and give that to the mechanic.

With regards shelf life, DOT brake fluid is hygroscopic which means it absorbs moisture so has a limited shelf life.

Perfect with ice and a slice.

50 brick to bleed brakes... i'm in the wrong business!.... 1st off, I know it sounds expensive, but not as expensive as not knowing what you're doing ;)
It's quite easy to bleed the brakes with no special tools, best off 2 people doing it, one sat in the car pumping the pedal when instructed, the other doing the caliper bleed bolts.
you can do one at a time, wheel off, loosen bleed, pump pedal to push old fluid out (bit of pipe and a jar would help), keep topping up the brake fluid res' so not to run out (nip bleed off while you check), eventually fresh fluid will come out, when this happens, get assistant to press and hold the brake pedal and nip off the bleed, release pedal. Done.
Repeat on other corners.... don't worry if res' runs dry, just fill up and repeat until no bubbles come out of the pipe :)

Use a good fitting spanner on the bleed nut and don't over tighten, doesn't need a kack hand turn to nip it off, likewise if it doesn't release with moderate force, leave it, it may snap, blow lamp around the nut base and a tap straight on top of it, should get it going :)

1 litre is enough to do a whole system, some cars you will need to pressure bleed ie not pump the pedal my 2001 S3 has to be pressure bled purchased a sealey one years ago £60 so saved me a fortune bleed mine every 2 years on all my cars cost is tiny when its this much plus your nipples don't get seized as much with regular bleeding & as we know no one likes seized nipples :D

Once opened the stuff you don't use should be disposed of. It won't keep more than a month or so after being opened. As mentioned moisture gets in - you won't see it, but its there, then if you use it in your system your brake pedal will be spongy, then one day you will brake hard and the brake pedal will go to the floor with not much braking effect and you will poo.

Majority of cars need pressure bleeding. Even on those that don't, bleeding via the pedal often led to the need for a new brake master cylinder as the seals traveled past the unused bits of the brake cylinder and got knackered. Also don't bleed them dry or the ABS unit needs bleeding which needs a computer to do. Gunson Eezibleed is the thing to get, it works off pressure of a spare tyre and also fills the reservoir as you bleed.

Yes, shelf life is an issue. Only buy as you need it and once opened, a year max.
Many cars need 1litre. 1.25 litres for larger cars. If you have a hydraulic clutch, maybe another 0.25 litres.
As a diy'er or novice, I would buyer 2 litres as it will be harder to judge when the new clearer fluid is ejected.
Never let the resveroir run dry, make no no tiny bubbles are entrained as you pour as these will get held in suspension and pumped down into the brake system for a spongy sinking brake feel.

Seized Nipples , Blow Lamps , Nut base , Bleed Nuts , Nip Bleeds , Ejected fluids , Turkey basters and poo ........... I've heard enough , this isn't one for the faint-hearted I feel !
