Does anyone know --
(1) what quantity of LHM is used in BXs to do a complete change (I can't find this info in Haynes)?
(2) what is the longevity of the stuff in the bottle/drum/etc once opened? is it really non-hygroscopic?

By the time you've bled the brakes, you'll need around 5 litres. Providing it's got a lid on, shelf life seems indefinite.
