    Did you lose/drain all of the fluid from the system or planning to flush for new fluid? Do you have a leak or is the fluid just reading a bit low? If reading a bit low with no leaks could just be time for a pad change.

    Just mentioning some items to help you get info.

    Depends on how many bottles you can fit in the back :-D

    Seriously though, that is an odd question. Brake fluid capacity isn't usually something one considers, even when doing a flush. We usually just buy a couple bottles and let it flush through following the normal brake bleed process.

    What is the issue leading to the capacity question?

    I want to change it just for maintenance.

    Just get a couple bottles of the proper fluid and follow the bleeding sequence, one caliper at a time until clear fluid flows from the caliper you're bleeding. Then move to the next one.

    Top off the master cylinder as needed. Don't let it get empty.

    I would think 2 would get it done with extra needed during flush/bleeding.

    It could probably be done with 1 big bottle, but I always buy 2...just in case.
