Do you have a leak? Better check to make sure, look at the pump and it's hoses and fittings. I wouldn't mix fluids, buy the proper stuff from a dealer or a trusted online source like AutohausAZ.

If the fluid doesn't have MB specification listed in your manual don't use it.
Even risk is low, the consequences can be tragic.
