This is mainly directed to motorcycles, but it has a lot of good info and reminders that apply across the board.

Good poop!! Didn't know the fluid should be changed routinely, DOT 4 picks up more water than DOT 3, or that 3 and 4 can be mixed to some degree.

They could have cautioned readers to NEVER leave the cap off fluid containers and how the water will corrode cylinders and calipers.
