By the way - I don't know where "GTA" is, and where is "Strathroy/Richmond Hill?" I'm guessing London? Or Ontario? Or maybe GA?
ATE Super Blue is the same as ATE Type 200 (which is DOT approved). The only reason it isn't DOT approved is because it's blue. The only reason it's blue is so that you can alternate it with Type 200 (which is gold) and know when you've bled it all through.

Resist the urge lump Super Blue/Type 200 in with all the "race only" fluids out there. They are excellent fluids, street or track, and are made for long change intervals in street applications.
