The Improve Braking by using Braided Brake Lines article a few weeks back was very informative. However, brake fluid is 'Hygroscopic,' not 'hydroscopic.' This is an all-too-common mistake. Hygroscopic means to 'readily take up and retain moisture.' Hydroscopic isn't even a word I think.

Hi Stan,

Hydroscopic is a word. It refers to 'an instrument that can detect water.' But hygroscopic is the correct word as you pointed out... Embarrased
