Unhappy Throttle Linkage Lubrication

My 560 SEL just turned 100k on a trip we did this weekend. Everything works great, but the cruise control seems to occasionally disengage, though it reengages on pulling the switch to resume. I have already wanted to lubricate the throttle linkage before the trip, but could not find the "Aero" hydraulic fluids specified in the manual, not even at my local airport!

I have seen other people mention ATF as a lubricant for their throttle linkage, but on was other models. Does anybody know if this is ok on the 560?
