The possibility to brake is the most important thing in the road transport safety. The effectiveness of the vehicle braking is influenced by brake fluid state – exactly the water volume share in the fluid. The brake fluid boiling point describes water volume in the fluid. By measuring the boiling point, this paper examines how a boiling point decline is influenced by the vehicle operation.
