Inexpensive Pentosin substitute?

I've heard, strong legs, cut the PS belt.  Remember when the bomb expires, brakes get really tough to push.

I've heard, go to Sams club/walmart buy lots of bulk mineral oil from the health and beauty aids department.

*My* recommendation (for all lawyers present) is to replace the high pressure hose, it's most likely leaking.  Cut back the hose with the protective rubber sheathing, if it's wet underneath, then that's what's causing the problem.
