Brake Fluid

Brake fluid level is low due to a nick in the fluid container. I have no idea how this happened Took her out for a day on the trail and then I saw a small puncture towards the top of the brake fluid container. So I took a heat gun and kind of melted the plastic together to fill the puncture.(talk about custom...) Regardless... Does anyone know what brake fluid I should use to fill the level back to where it needs to be? Any input or opinions would be appreciated

As mentioned, it's on the cap. It's also in the owners manual. And, lastly, Amsoil is a great resource for pretty much any fluid that goes in your car from transmission, to brakes, to engine, to differential, etc.
