Dot 4 + sometimes call Dot 4 LV or Dot 4 super. They are a thinner versions of normal DOT 4 intended for use in brake systems with ABS etc.

The reason for the various names is that there isn't yet an official Dot standard for low viscosity Dot 4 brake fluid so they are all just marketing terms.

There is however an ISO standard 4925 class 6 which you can look for on the bottle. It specifies a maximum viscosity of 750 cSt @ -40 Deg C. compared with 1800 cSt @ -40 Deg C for normal Dot 4.

Yet another slight variation on the marketing name for low viscosity Dot 4. It will be fine and 1 Litre will be enough.
