DOT 3 is DOT 3. It should all be compatible.

As being a graduated automotive student and current parts person, I can tell you guys that there is no such thing as "synthetic" brake fluid. The manufacturers only put it on the label to make it sound better and charge you more money.

Actually, all DOT3 and DOT4 is synthetic, made up of glycol and polyglycol esthers.
