Ok, so my brake fluid light has been coming on occaisionally, and I’m going to troubleshoot and top it off this weekend. I talked to the PO and I know he used the blue, but he didn’t remember the brand. Said something about blue for topping off and gold for flushing. I know he asked the question here in the past, but a search of the board and google of the old board turned up no definitive answer. So, I’m looking for current opinions. Anyone want to expand on this? What brand? Why blue vs. gold? ATE vs. MTL?

CR Kreiger has a VERY good explanation of the various types of brake fluid in this thread.
