Which 80w-90 Castrol diff oil?

Hi

There seems to be 2 variants of Castrol 80w-90 EPX oil (for the rear diff).

A) Listed as "differential oil" usually explicitly stating Freelander 2.
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LAND-ROVER-CASTR...w_x0kVkLcw

B) Listed as "Axle oil" and usually about a third of the price of A.
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Castrol-Axle-EPX...2749.l2649

Is there any difference, does anyone know?

Thanks.

Option 1 - Photo looks old and not on Castrol website.

Option 2 - Shown on Castrol website and provided in most of the FL2 rear diff kits on ebay. Also used this one myself. FL2 HSE Auto Galway Green

Ask millers oil tech dept what to use and save some brass. I did. Thumbs Up Opie do the oils and do a discount. 51 Series one passed/sold on half restored to a mate to finish years ago.
Lots of Euro Trash
53 Series one low mileage let go foolishly years ago looking at current prices.
Series 2A Safari restored fully while in Saudi Arabia years ago, sold on to a Brit.
