Default Changing clutch fluid

Should I get the DOT 5? I am assuming that seeing it is higher then 4 it should be better?

The problem with Dot-5 silicone fluid is that it absorbs air causing air bubbles in the fluid, giving a mushy pedal. Use Dot-4; it is better than Dot-3 (higher boiling point with Dot-4), easy to obtain, & inexpensive.

Should never mix Dot 3 or Dot 4 with dot 5. It's a no no.
