    Brake Fluid

    Because of all the new stuff on the market, I've forgot what sort of brake fluid I need for my older motor cars. Is it ok to put synthetic stuff in or do I need something else? One runs Jag/Viva discs and one is a '59 Velox.

    Thanks nicely.

    Avoid the silicone - Dot 5
    Dot 4 or Dot 5.1 are the original glycol based ones and will be fine.
