    Can I put Magura Royal Blood oil into Shimano XT brakes? Both run mineral oil so can I put one in t’other? Hope so – save a few pennies as I have a stack of Magura oil.

    Halfords Mineral Oil £12/l
    Shimano Mineral Oil £25/l
    I used the halfords one fine. If it’s mineral oil it’s fine. Again there is no mineral oil cow in the Shimano factory 🙂

    Only problem with mixing fluids will be warranty
    As the colour is not the same.

    For me I use lhm in place of royal blood or shimano fluid

    At work we use the correct manufacture fluid bit not Becasuse there seems to be a performance differnace

    Lhm is the mineral oil used in cars mostly Citroen and Bentley/rolls
    Its the mineral oil sold by car shops.

    Some say it causes more drag than shimanos own but I’ve never noticed

    the £12/l halfords one above.

    FWIW my suspension oil says motorbikes on it too
