Pentolin: Nectar of the 'Gods'
It never ceases to amaze me just how precise the Audi is.
The hydraulic fluid reservoir was less than 1/2 a centimeter below 'MIN'
and it set that red-triangle brake warning light reeling for 3 days...
Scaring the living shit out of me.
All it took was 3 'glugs' from that $14-per-liter can of Pentolin Mineral
Oil -- the Nectar of the Gods-- And it silenced the warning light..
People who 'don't know' are always going to be out there... waiting to say
'I told you so -- you should have bought a nice, reliable car... A Toyota
or something...' or, 'Why can't you just be practical...'
They don't know what it's like to feel the rush of $2000 repair bill just
graze your wallet as you stumble across a rare remedy -- a special fluid or
tool the Audi needs to feel 'comfortable' again -- and perform..They don't
know how we feel about our precious Audis.
