[Mgs] brake fluid

The car is safely in the garage when it's wet outside.
Though living near the seeside makes the air humid almost all time...
There are lower riverbanks, which regulary flood.
I do not live nearby a river, so no chance.
I do live several meters below seelevel - how about that!
And yes the soil overhere is quite wet.
But we're happy we do not have such severe storms like the US east coast has

Take care all of you!

you must live in a very wet environment.  I live in an environment with
relatively high humidity in the summer, and have driven cars for years (one
over 10) with no issues at all.

you are in Holland, right?  do you leave the car in one of those fields they
regularly flood <grin>?

I use Dot 5 since 2000 and found, that regular replacement must be done,
eventhough Dot 5 does not mix with water.
Water vapour still comes into the system, so finally can create rust into
the cylinder bores.
So I had to replace the clutch MC, as the cylinder bore was pitted.
