    Are All Mineral Oil Brake Fluids the Same?

    I got a set of Old Magura HS-22 Hydraulic rim brakes that need to be bleed out and I run out of the original Magura mineral fluids. I noticed Shimano also use mineral oils in their brake systems and more easily available. Do you think its a good idea to Shimano's oil since its cheaper and in greater quantities? Thanks

    Yes, you can use the Shimano branded mineral oil to bleed Magura hydraulic brakes. You can also use the same mineral oil brake fluid as found in Citroen CV cars.

    I have used both to bleed the HS-11, HS-22, HS-33, Julie, Louise, Marta hydraulic brakes with no problems.

    How about just plain Baby Oil? That's 100% pure mineral oil too, and crazy cheap.
