    There Are Hydraulic fluids that are made to cary water and hold it in suspension and there are others that do not mix with water and the water will separate fairly fast. I once kept a jar of emulsified watery oil for over a year and it never separated. That was the oil that is made to carry water. Iv been using normal mineral hydraulic oil in my jcb. My Massey tractor has the other type in it. It turned coffee color with water recently and I boiled some of it out in a stock pot. 20210224_195742.jpg Before and after pic
