Do NOT use regular PS fluid.   It'll shorten the life of seals in the
entire system, I believe.   Almost any hydraulic oil would be preferrable.
There's a Mobil Oil Co product called DTE-13M that many on the list use as
a substitute.  It's something like $5-7 a gallon if purchased in a
5-gallon pail.
