Brake fluid. Mineral oil sounds like trouble waiting to happen.

In fact it might say right on the cap what it takes.

Just use brake fluid. I have noticed at work now we sell a bottle that looks like brake fluid that says hydraulic clutch fluid. I'm sure someone is making money from relabeling a bottle of brake fluid.

Oh, trust me, it is on the shelf labeled as hydraulic clutch fluid, and some are adamant about getting it, even though I tell them it is the same thing...
