#1 When reaching for a bottle of coke/cola make sure its the correct bottle.
Check its NOT the bottle you use to store all the old fork and suspension oils and hydraulic fluids.

YUCK :x
I wasnt paying attention and got a mouthful, some of which i managed to swallow :lol: Dont worry,the mixture of dot5.1,dot 4 and mineral oils diluted the hydraulic fluid so i dont think it will cause any harm,but that said im drinking loads of milk to help dilute it all.

The belches and aftertaste though.... :lol: :lol:

It happened to me when I was really young, my mom filled a coke bottle with wine for cooking and I had 2 or 3 sips ;D
at that time I almost puked everything.. if it was today I would probably enjoy;D

Dot 4 looks dodgier than dot 5.1

Dot4
http://www.kmcoinc.com/DOT4%20Brake%20F ... DS%20(9-09).pdf

(of particular note is the "risk of death" noted under ingestion. Although I suspect youd need to drink a bath full to run that risk...)

Dot 5.1
http://www.federalmogul.com/NR/rdonlyre ... uid_US.pdf

There are a whole load of "hydraulic fluids", but the ones I have just glanced at seem to suggest no major effects to health on ingestion.

So if you end up dead it's probably the dot4 that did it!

Once you get a tatste for Dot 4, it can be difficult to stop.
