Have you considered the 55 gallon drum size
You could roof mount it and have a drip feed to the master cylinder thereby eliminating a daily check of the fluid level and save a buck or two

Having fun Bishir?

I think GM made the special 55 gal. drum bracket holder for the Vega.

If it has power brakes and has no obvious leaks in the wheel cylinders and/or lines, you may be leaking behind the master cylinder. The engine will suck it up and pass it through. I had the same problem a long time ago - also had a transmission leak that did not leak to the ground - I found that the vacuum modulator valve was leaking and getting sucked up by the engine too - these fluids will burn somewhat, and you may never notice the engine running differenty.
