Silicone brake fluid is the one that doesn't absorb moisture, and should never be mixed with the regular stuff. I use it in my car, and the car can sit for long periods of time without the calipers runsting and freezing up.

As for synthetics... Read the can. It will tell you whether or not it's compatible with standard fluid.

Good Luck!
