Hydraulic oil confusion ...

	I thought I had it figured out, but apparently not. I was
	under the impression that older cars (< '88?) used the
	Pentosin CHF 7.1 (white can, green cap), and the newer ones
	used CHF 11 (green can, red cap). A couple of different
	stores have confirmed this in the past, but now Jim Blau
	(of Blaufergnuegen) tells me that it's CHF 7.1 till '93 or
	so (Audi part number G002 0000). The manual for my '91 200Q
	confirms the part number.

	So .. what's the skinny? How badly am I hosed, given that
	I've put in CHF 11 instead of 7.1 a couple of times
	in the past month? What's the best course to pursue?

	Thanks in advance, folks!
