    A quick google search says Honda prefers you use dot 3. Just sayin...

    "Heavy Duty Brake Fluid DOT 3 08798-9008 4423802 The only brake fluid specifically formulated for use in Honda vehicles. It helps to reduce the corrosive effects of moisture in the fluid and is compatible with synthetic and rubber materials."

    Look at the boiling point ratings. Use only DOT 3 or 4.
