    Default which type power steering fluid for 2003 vectra C 2.0 dti ?

    my vectra C has a bit of seepage on the power steering rack & last night the low fluid warning briefly flashed up .
    decided to top it up today rather than wait for the warning to come on all the time & end up killing the pump .
    went to halfords to get some fluid & a long funnel ( to get down the back of the headlight)
    upon checking their book of fluids it says the vectra c 2.0 dti 2002 - 2005 uses normal power steering fluid .
    below that it lists a few other vectra c ( mostly petrol ) & states that they need the chf 11s fluid , it also has a star next to such vehicles & at the bottom of the list it says this star means they have electro hydraulic power steering .
    my assumption would be that their list is wrong as my car also has electro hydraulic power steering , so why would it have normal fluid in it if the rest are meant to have the other type ?
    anyone shed any light on this ?

    I'm sure all the vectra c's use central hydraulic fluid. I bought this one from halfords when I needed to top mine up http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...Id_255219#tab4
