    Does anyone know what the brake system capacity is for 2002 Subaru
    Outback? Any and all info is greatly appreciated.

    What do you mean by capacity? Amount of total brake fluid or how much
    load the brakes can handle as in trailer capacity/load?

    Sorry, I should have clarified that. I mean the fluid capacity. I
    need to replace it's brake fluid and I have some good stuff left over
    from another job.

    Capacity of the system doesn't mean much
    since you bleed until the fluid is clear.
    So it's an "as needed" item.

    The times I've done the Outback Murphy's
    law prevailed, with me needing a small can
    and a tablespoonful from another one. :)

    I usually start with two small unopened cans of dot 3/4 and end up
    with ~ 1/2 can after a complete flushing.
