    Well it won't harm it at least but its anyones guess as to how it will perform. I don't know if magura uses a different viscosity oil.

    Magura states pretty clearly that you should never use any mineral oil other than their Royal Blood in your brakes. Legitimate, marketing, or covering their asses, I know not which.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    What about on the molecular (if you will) point of view?

    I think Magura was recommending Finishline 5wt fork oil as a temporary replacement while they were having supply issues with the Blood from Germany. Check the archives.
