The manual is out of date--it recommends using motor oil, but Mercedes Benz has changed that recommendation in their "approved product" sheets.
If you take it to an MB dealer to change the manual transmission fluid, they'll use Mobil1 ATF.
There are two different transmissions listed: 716.0 takes 1.6 liters, and 716.21 takes 1.3 liters. I think the 83 is the latter, but not totally sure.
