Just a reminder Ken -

I am using Chevron RYKON 32 hydraulic oil, which is a cross to MOBIL DTE 13M
hydraulic oil, and quite a few people are using this in their Audis.
Both cost around $35 for 5 gallons.
As far as I know, nobody has had any problem with this oil and it is way cheap.
I made the switch so I could afford to really flush out the system with clean
oil. The old stuff in the system was black and nasty looking.
Knock on wood, but my rack and brake servo are still original at 140K miles and
the oil stays pretty clear now.


Quoting "Stafford, Kenneth A." <stafford at WPI.EDU>:
