I've been using Castrol LMA for 3 years, it was OK. The only thing I did not
like about it was the black stuff in the reservoir and the calipers (even
though I have a habit of pressure bleeding the whole sys several times a
year). Pentosin DOT4 seems to last longer without decaying into the black
snotty stuff. It is not syntetic and it is not silicone.

I get it for $9/L from a local Israely dude, who can undersell even Linda. I
have never seen it advertised nationally, though.
