    I have some mineral brake fluid left over from a truck I had that had wet brakes. What would happen if I used this fluid on my conventional brake systems? Could it be mixed with the DOT or silicone stuff I have? What makes it different from other brake fluids? If I cannot use it with what I have, what else is it good for?

    I was thinking about using it with my used engine oil. But I agree, some brake fluids will do a lot of damage. This stuff is different though. I just do not know how much different.
