Synthetic Dot4 will do no harm. It has a higher boiling point than Dot3, so it is much better.
All DOT3,4 and 5.1 brake fluid is synthetic (polyglycol and glycol ethers)base. Boiling points are due to each brands formula of additives. DOT 5 is silicone based and shouldnt be mixed at all. Some HDs use DOT 5.
