Dexron, Steve, no "T". DexronIII/Mercon to be exact. If you can find a synth that says it is "DexronIII/Mercon", go ahead and use it.

I used Wal*Mart brand DexronIII in mine and have had no trouble.

Many people use Mobil 1 ATF without any complaints - just comments about how well it works in cold climates. Synthetic ATF of any sort was never officially approved by MB, but I don't think anyone's had a problem using the syn fluid. I use Mobil 1 ATF in my tranny.
