You can use DOT 3 or 4 in the brake reservoir. 3 and 4 are interchangeable.
In the clutch reservoir, DOT 4 should be used. In both the clutch and the brakes synethics can be used because they are also interchangeable.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD DOT 5 BE USED. IT CONTAINS SILICONE AND WILL NOT MIX WITH 3 OR 4.
I am using Prestone DOT 4 synethic in the clutch, but there are many good brands to be had. (Walmart $2.60 for 12 oz.)
