    To be honest theres no real way of telling from the 4.1 \ 5.1 as this is just a minimun spec.

    5.1 is better than 4.1 as a base but all racing 4.1 fluids out preform standard 5.1 specs.

    The best thing to do is just compare the wet and dry boiling points.

    Oh and I'm using Wilwood 4.1 racing fluid. Cost me about £10 for 1l and it hasn't let me down yet.
