Bubble Counter Fluid


I use plain-old mineral oil which is, I suspect, the same thing these fluids are.

Since the mineral oil is more viscous, the bubbles seem to be more consistent 
which makes adjustments easier.

One potential problem would be that the fluid could somehow get into your tank.  
I'm not sure what the consequences would be but it has never happened to me.
