    Is the refill tube for the Gen3 blinker fluid behind the 3rd or 4th bulb in the pass rear taillight?

    Since I have old fashioned bulbs I guess I should stick with the regular fluids for compatibility.

    I've heard that with LED conversions synthetic blinker fluid lets you go 15,000 miles on your load resistors.

    tomk.... Ah! well that may just be the determining factor right there on synth over traditional.

    That photo of the regular fluid does look like it could have been through the refinement process one more time (not super clear fluids.) I'm guessing the molecular contaminates in the regular stuff may be why they aren't getting the 15,000 miles on the resistors like you mentioned.

    Humm.

    I actually did pull the blinker fluid trick on my sister once. Sent her in to Western Auto for me, gave her five bucks and told her to run in and get me a quart of blinker fluid, (excuse for me to stay in the car was I needed to feather the gas to keep it running). For good measure, I also asked her to pick me up a few muffler bearings. She came out of that store redder than a baboon's arse, didn't talk to me for 3 days. Good times...

    We used to send raw recruits after 6 fathoms of water line or a gallon of prop wash, then there was the ever succulent relative bearing grease for the gyroscope bearings.
