There is no DOT 4.1. It's DOT 3, DOT 4, DOT 5.1. And they're all essentially the same, just refined to different levels. This means different viscosity and boiling point.

Never buy a silicone based brake fluid. If you get something like Motul DOT 5.1, it can be mixed with DOT 3 or 4 fluids. DOT 5.1 is also half as viscuous with a much higher boiling point. This means better piston response and lever feel while reducing fade and fluid expansion.
