Yes, there may be a difference bewteen available U.S. DOT 4 fluid,
and Lucas/Girling/lockeed/Castol LMA DOT 4 fluid.
I can say for certain that standard DOT 3 fluid will kill the natural
seals sooner or later. I learned the hard way. DPO had'nt a clue, and
seals began to weep only days after purchase.
As far as the DOT 4 stuff goes, be certain its for an english auto.
It will say so on the bottle.
