	I have bought a brand of Mineral Hydraulic Fluid called CHF
at a local "Kar Parts" store for about $14 a liter. It is a German
brand and specifically states that its for steering and other 
hydraulic systems. Other foreign auto parts stores said they carry
it when I called to ask if they have "mineral hydraulic fluid for
Audi steering systems". So try your local foreign car parts store.
