Never posted on here before but here goes. Had an issue with low bake fluid after some forest road driving. refilled master cylinder reservoir with a full pint and days later no hint of a leak or low fluid level. Could I have boiled out brake fluid while driving down out of some hills/mountains?

Could be leaking into the brake booster.

Zero leaks since losing fluid. Apparently the brakes got hot enough to steam away brake fluid. I was advised by a mechanic to switch to dot 4. thanx for the reply!
