How many Liters needed for Brake Flush?

Approaching that cycle - going to need a full flush soon. Have been reading several threads - many say 1L will cover, but may be more.

Service worth having done at dealer to activate ABS for full flush? (Been 2 years)

Quoted $160 labor costs

Have read through all topics and no clear definitive answer. Hope to post all documented findings / & detail / update this thread with needed info for members in the future

2L at least for a full flush. 1L maybe for a bleed.

No, i did a full flush with a vacuum bleeder then traditional styled the rest. It is "dealer" required to reset the miles on the brake fluid service indicator, but you can turn that off yourself too.
