Hi, I need to bleed my Tektro Draco brakes and i´ve been searching many LBS but they do not have tektro mineral oil available. Some DO have Shimano Mineral Oil. A guy at a LBS told me i could use Shimano oil w/o problems.
Is there any issue with this or should i just go with the Shimano oil??
Thanks

I've used the Shimano Mineral oil on Tektro's and vice versa. Currently using Finish Line Mineral Oil for servicing brakes that utilize mineral oil.

Zero issues.

Im curious about using non-shimano mineral oil too. As posted above, is mixing ok? Or should you drain all shimano oil, and replace with Finish Line oil for example?

This is the question I have and was searching the forums. I would assume it would be okay but would like to hear from experience whether it caused fading or any lack of performance. Thanks!
