Amber to Amber brake fluid bleed

Hi all
I don't know how well know this is, but by federal law, all brake fluid is now amber (yellow) colored.

So here's the question to those who've done amber to amber bleeding... How difficult is it to know when the new stuff is bleeding when both are yellow? Is it pretty obvious?

Any tips or tricks? E. G. I'm wondering if I should add a drop or two of food coloring.

Thanks.
Dan

I have not heard of this. There must be a grace period if this is true.

I was told this at a local auto parts store. Pelican parts website verifies it as well. Can't get ate super blue anymore.

It's so that firefighters can immediately tell what kind of fluids are spilled at a crash site.

Glad for them, sucks for a DIYer. Guess you're going to have to track it via quantity in and quantity out.
