Do you know if your brake fluid meets the proper specifications for your vehicle? If not, now you can find out the easy way with BrakeStrip ID from Phoenix Systems. With a simple test, this identification system allows you to determine what brake fluid you have in your vehicle and if it needs to be changed, making basic brake maintenance fast and simple.

Official Release:


ST. GEORGE, Utah – Phoenix Systems introduces BrakeStrip ID, a visual brake system performance test that quickly identifies the Department of Transportation (DOT) type of brake fluid in your vehicle.

Vehicle manufacturers design brake systems to use a specific type of fluid, and BrakeStrip ID is designed to make sure your brake fluid meets the proper specification for your vehicle. BrakeStrip ID, which identifies DOT 3, 4 and 5.1 brake fluids, also finds brake fluid that needs replaced.

“Our easy-to-use BrakeStrip ID strips are useful in the service industry as well as in performance applications,” said Jon Petty, CEO of Phoenix Systems. “Since you can’t determine brake fluid type by looking at it, BrakeStrip ID is one way to make sure your brake fluid is up to spec for your next performance project.”

BrakeStrip ID is a Motorist Assurance Program (MAP) approved brake fluid test and features a three-year accuracy guarantee. It is available at leading automotive retailers and comes in a tube of 100 strips. For more information, visit
