    I would have to say, since very few here have yet to find out how you came to lose your blinker fluid in the first place, is to keep all 4 tires on the ground, or at least keep at least underneath the rest of the truck.........

    Glad to hear you and co-driver came out of the unfortunate incident unscathed, sad to hear and see the results.........

    if much more leaks out be sure to put synthetic in, it will make your lights illuminate faster and last longer.

    Topping it off shouldn't be a problem but you might as well replace it with Synthetic Blinker Fluid from Kaleco and call it good.

    The synthetic blicker fluid is much faster so you may need to replace the flasher unit to a heavy duty model to reduce the viscosity a little.

    You should disconnect the battery ASAP until you get that leak fixed. Blinker fluid is VERY volatile stuff! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
