Car Mechanics (UK) - - Product Test -

Sealey’s VS820 emerges as the win­ner in our test. Even though its brake fluid tank ca­pac­ity is not the big­gest, at 2.5 litres, this re­mains more than suf­fi­cient to con­duct a typ­i­cal flush on a mod­ern ve­hi­cle. The hor­i­zon­tal side-mounted pres­sure gauge is a dis­ad­van­tage, as is the pres­sure re­lease but­ton in­stead of the ro­tary knob that graces the Clarke. We also found that the pump re­quired more ef­fort to use com­pared to the Sealey VS1205 – how­ever, at least the in­ter­nal fluid pick-up pipe touches the bot­tom of the bot­tle. We liked the high-qual­ity 90° metal fit­tings on the cap that proved to be leak-free through­out the eval­u­a­tion. We also ap­pre­ci­ated the ver­ti­cal brake fluid filler, with its large aper­ture and sep­a­rate cap.

While Sealey’s largest of­fer­ing has a high re­tail price, we also con­sid­ered that it can be ob­tained via of­fi­cial agents for less than half the cost, which swung our judge­ment.
