Re: Castrol Mineral Hydraulic Fluid

I used a couple of pints of this stuff a year ago or so in my 1983 Audi 
 100 Avant (I needed to top up after a reservoir leak and after a bomb 
 replacement).  I have had no problems since then with the power 
 steering, brakes or self-levelling rear suspension.

My bomb warning light lights up once every couple of months or so - I 
 have no idea why.  I get 38 presses of the brake peddle before I lose assist.
