    New question here. Reuse Purged Shimano Break Fluid?

    This may be a silly question but,

    Can I reuse the purged break fluid?

    While bleeding my brakes I collected quite a bit of the Shimano mineral oil in the catch bag. It is as clear and new looking as what I poured into the reservoir. Can I just dump it back into the bottle seal it up and reuse it another time? At least part of it was in service since this summer, but shows no visible signs of, well anything.

    Call me cheap but at $10 bucks a bottle and having used most of it just putting my calipers back on, I'd like to save it if it makes no difference.

    TIA

    I don't see why not...

    I too use a catch basin when bleeding my Maggies and I'll reuse fluid so long as it looks clean, which it always does.

    I vote reuse & be happy.
