It's good to understand how brake fluid works. I've done some research and found that no liquids are really compressable. Brake Fluids are designed to meet specific standards that keep them working in cars where other liquids might not. Oils damage rubber seals & hoses, therefore, brake fluids are not petroleum-based. Most brake fluids used today are glycolether based, but mineral oil and silicone (DOT 5)based fluids are also available. Synthetic brake fluid typically refers to brake fluid made out of some silicone substance. While most brake fluids are mineral-based, the arguement can be made that all BF are synthetic, but synthetic brake fluid simply means that it is silicone based. DOT-3 has a common dry boiling point of 405F (meaning before fluid has absorbed a certain amount of moisture). The wet boiling point is about 284 degrees ferenheight. Automotive professionals agree that brake fluids should be flushed & changed every 1-2 years. All brake fluids must meet Federal Standards concerning viscosity, corrosion, and compressibility. The fact of the matter is, that in terms of performance, it makes no difference whether you use synthetic brake fluid, or not. The important difference is the type of fluid you use, ie; DOT3, DOT4, and DOT5. The first two can absorbe water (which is generally a bad thing), while the latter does not. Hope this helps. Alex.

Comments about Wearever Brake Fluid 32oz:

Use DOT 4 for higher performance/higher heat conditions. DOT3 is for most modern automotive & light truck applications. I always recommend flushing & replacing any fluid in a system that's over 24 months old. In fact, Volkswagen recommends it as a service item. Remember, brake fluid absorbs moisture and moisture causes rust, frozen caliper pistons.

          I bought this product to refill brake fluid resevoir after doing a replacement of both the rotors and the brake pads on the front of my 150 xlt. Since you have to open bleeder valve to be able to push brake psitons back into the caliper in order to make room for the new rotor and pads since they had more materials. I bought carquest weaver platinum pads and rotors so I decided to stick with the brand and bought both carquest brake fluid and brake parts cleaner giving they were all on sale it was all a great buy

            In the process of replacing the rotors and brake discs on our Jeep YJ we decided to completely drain the brake fluid which as discolored and quite dirty (as one would expect on a 27 year old vehicle). The large container of brake fluid was plenty to get the job done.
