Ron,

What are you wanting to test the fluid for?

Moisture, rubber contamination.

I have some free samples of some test strips (look like Litmus Strips).

Procedure couldn't be easier; dip the strip in the reservoir and within a minute, comare the color on the strip to the provided chart.

Did you give them a test in a new bottle of brake fluid?

I talked with the clerk and she said they don't sell to non business.
Their minimum is six containers at ~$170. plus shipping from FL.
The owner is supposed to call me back at around 2PM.

still not sure why you want this.

you can buy ATE brake fluid for < $12/liter. why not just replace the questionable fluid :dunno:

It's not my car.
A dealer did a brake bleed flush and the fluid is just as dirty as it was before the brake bleed flush.
The owner called them on it and they said it was done.

Same with my Z3 last year.
New fluid looked exactly like the old.
I too would like to be able to "test".
