Hi Ben

 Congrats on your new / older Rover !!  I would think you should be seeing 
plenty of exhaust smoke from the brake fluid if indeed it is being sucked 
into the engine...otherwise it does sound very odd.
  Did you sell the P5 ?? or are you now a 2 Rover family :)

 Here's wishing you all of the best for the new year and hopefully I will 
see you in the spring.
