Don't just take my word for it.
SRF is not silicone based ... it's DOT4, not DOT5, and it works 100% of the time, and never fails. Period. I would never go back ... we used it in all our cars, and had zero issues with fluid. Bleed the brakes a coulpe times a season ... maybe. Gonna have to disagree without your sources on this on, Steven
