Red indicates where the brake fluid did not meet the SAE J1704 and/or FMVSS 116 requirements.

Yellow indicates where brake fluid did not meet the manufacturer’s performance claims

*While we have only listed Motul RBF600 and RBF660 the performance characterisitics are applicable to a large number of other brands of fluids as they all come from one manufacturer.
