month since I drove it last and the car hates to sit. But I havenbt yet

Jim,  if there is no obvious external leak,  consider the brake booster.  If

seals are dodgy, you could be sucking the brake fluid into the vacuum line and

burning it.  Mind you there would likely be some on the inside firewall if the

car sits for long periods.



I know that you recently replaced the master,  but  stranger things have

happened.

Brake booster and clutch master cylinder are not connected.
