The brake fluid temperatures of three passenger cars were monitored during Alpine vehicle trials in Italy and Switzerland. Comparison of the data obtained with those from similar evaluations in the United States shows that European conditions can make greater high-temperature demands on brake fluid, temperatures above 150?C being frequently experienced. The high-temperature performance requirements of European brake fluids are discussed.
