    It's a win-win for everyone involved.

    The price of blue goes up; it remains available as off-road non-DOT fluid; people buy still buy it etc.

    Even if it goes away entirely the yellow version will remain, and when new it's quite clear so it's not difficult to distinguish from older fluid in the lines.

    Stupid DOT. I've been using the blue / amber system for some time.

    It appears Tire Rack has already stopped selling the blue: http://www.tirerack.com/brakes/brand.jsp?brand=ATE

    Yup, it will be "ATE Super Beige" only once supply runs out. At least the formula is the same, I love that stuff.

    So, we've got red diesel for off-road use only and now blue brake fluid has been banned. Look out green coolant, you'll be the next to be outlawed.

    Yeah I read about that last month when it first came about. How stupid is that? What the hell is a federal law out there mandating brake fluid be clear or amber, going to accomplish? Make sure nobody is using Smurf Blood as fluid or something?? Government is retarded sometimes (ok, most of the time).
