    Any link to post ?

    I don't think magura offer 2 differents kind of hydraulic fluid.

    The only one i've always seen (and use) is Magura royal blood hydraulic mineral oil. The fluid is blue in color.

    If those two description come from two differents sites, i think it's only a typing error, or they just want to make it shorter.

    Since Magura uses Mineral oil, can we use Shimano Mineral oil on these brakes?

    From what i've read over the internet it is STRONGLY recommanded that you stick to the original Magura brake fluid. Apparently the magura mineral oil has a lower viscosity than the shimano. If you use shimano oil you might loose some performance and/or void your warranty.
