Ok..Iam replying from my BlackBerry, so I am not sure how this will be entered.
Billboost is correct...there was no odor, it wasn't greasy, it was thin in viscosity...Exhaust/carbon buildup. This was a fun post, thanks guys....HE HE BCDI...I am still laughing at that one..

What you need to do is get on all four'* and both sniff it and lick it. Better take a second lick just on the safe side.............Now report back!

She took the time to take pictures and everything. She smelled it, felt it, tasted it.....OK not tasted.... (Memories of the Cheech & Chong skit) She laughed at the post also..
Make fun at me all you want, but not my family please.

Skippy,it looked to me like he was paying her a compliment

My fiancee is the same way,she would let me know if she found any mysterious leaks on the garage floor.
Now,if I only had a garage floor to leak on

Skippy...I'll expect payment from the brake fluid people.

And I don't want $5 from them. I want them to go out and flush their brake lines. It will help them stop better and understand what brake fluid looks like.
