Most of the guys I know run fork fluid. I use 5wt some guys use 2.5wt. It works good and lightens the feel a small amount since it's lighter weight than the 10wt mineral oil. ATF is about 7wt and some guys use it but I don't know what type.

Go with fork oil. I tried tranny fluid, fork oil is a lighter pull. I have also heard it protects the seal in the slave cyl better.
