    you'll be lucky Marty due to how poisonous it is, my set uses as blue fluid, is this for a home made set??

        Just did a search and found this, what brand is yours MM? might be outta luck replacing mercury.

        Syncpro Manometer Fluid Refill
        Manometer fluid refill for 08-0411 SyncPRO Carb Tuner
        Non-toxic
        Mercury free
        Motion Pro blue color
        SyncPro Manometer Fluid Refill does NOT work with older Motion Pro mercury carburetor synchronizers
        NOTE:
        SyncPRO™ manometer fluid cannot replace mercury
        and vice-versa

            Can vouch for the motion pro Sync Pro one, very nice bit of kit, if you need to borrow one in a hurry let me know.

              You can try refilling, but mercury is denser than what is used in the newer ones (which I think is alcohol), so you are more likely to suck it into the carbies. Depends on how exactly it works and how much you lift the mercury, but as a guide 10mm mercury = 135mm H20, so if you were lifting the mercury 10mm and refilled with water you would lift the water 135mm with the same vacuum.

              Maybe you could try something like a thick oil which might not rise as quickly due to its viscosity?
