The main variances between brake fluid is their boiling point and whilst it may seem wise to get the highest grade for you vehicle this isn't advisable. The primary difference between a DOT 3 and DOT 4 is that a DOT 4 will absorb more water over time than a DOT 3 yet have a higher boiling point. The higher boiling point is better for continued heavy braking but the absorption of water has the possibility of corroding brake lines and brake components. As all brake fluid has some element of being hygroscopic this is why the flushing and replacement of your vehicles brake fluid needs to happen on a scheduled basis.
