    I think you are right the 5.1 does not absorb water. It is Synthetic. Supposedly compatible with 3 & 4 but nobody has told me we can use it.

    DOT 4 has a slightly higher boiling point than DOT 3.

    Some guys never get a break....I hate it when a brake is broken. I broke a brake but then got a break when the broken brake unbroke itself.

    I usually go broke when I work on my brakes. Think I'll go sit by the brook and contemplate this. :lol3
