Pentosin alternative

Hey guys.

I was wondering - is it true that Citroen LHM fluid is an alternative to the rather exotic Pentosin CHF 7.1 fluid?

I have a leak in the SLS, so I'm running a bit low (keeping an eye on it) and a couple of litres of Pentosin enroute. But LHM is much easier to get a hold of in this country.


<hints id="hah_hints"></hints>I need to keep the level up until I can repair the SLS, so LHM will be easier.

It is a near match, but the pentosin is so cheap that I wouldn't bother.

I'd order 5 litres all in once then. Once you need to bleed the system to find out where the problem lies, you can never have enough!

I know to have gone through 7 or 8 cannisters before my SLS delete was fully succesful!
