the HB setup sheets are using the system Europe and much of the world uses to rate the fluids. The AE and Losi fluids are an America only rating system. The Losi fluids are fairly close to the other standards up to about 25-30wt (IE 25=250) but after that the differences gets progressively larger. But all the diff fluids use the same standard as the European shock fluid system. In that system, the fluid viscosity has a constant linear increase as the numbers get larger. That also means that a 500 diff fluid is exactly the same as 500 shock fluid. So, it is easier to use when you learn it.

One bottle will fill several diffs. Depending on how much you run, you don't need to change it that often. After the first hour or so of run time, you need to change the fluid because of break in. After that it should stay cleaner for longer. After a few changes it should stay much cleaner and you can go several hours of running on the same fluid, as long as it doesn't leak.
