You need to use the proper kind, otherwise you risk damaging the power steering components, causing thousands of $$ of damage. You should be able to find this fluid at a Mercedes Dealer, or just maybe a Dodge/Chrysler dealer because MB shared a lot of parts between the two companies. Try MB first though.
