    IIRC, dot 4 is what the dealer put in mine every couple of years.

    Is the stuff you got in a sealed container? If not, then it might have absorbed some moisture during storage - ie gone hygroscopic, which is one of the main reasons for changing it every couple of years.

    Vehicle : Mk1 renault scenic... I know I know but it drives

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.6 16v

    Year : 2003

    Dot 4 is what's in their but can also use dot 5.1 but needs to be noted if you swap to 5.1 that although it has a higher boiling temp

    its more hydroscopic so needs changing every 12 months as opposed to every 24 months with dot 4

    Just a thought m8, but if you have all this stuff, and I'm guessing it might be "cheap" , get selling some in the "bits for sale" section
