Default Power steering fluid

I changed out the fluid in the reservoir tonight and man was that stuff black and thick. Funny thing is I was pouring the old fluid into an old Coke bottle and when I got done, it looked just like Coke. I got 13 oz changed out with Valvoline Synthetic. I figure I will run it about 1,000 miles and then do it again.

I used a hand held vacuum pump and pumped it out, measured it, refilled with new fluid. I also checked it after my next driving trip, it was a little low so I topped it off.
