VW uses their own stuff, but on my A2, I replaced with GM fluid, which I 
have in quantity anyway.
On a side note, that Lucas oil power steering fixer upper in a bottle 
actually works.  I use a snort of that in every PS reservoir that is 
over ten years old around here.  I tried it originally on my 97 golf.- 
it leaked from when i got it, and after refill of the reservoir witht eh 
lucas oil stuff (it was a half inch low) the leak ended, and is still 
non-existent.   Whatever they have in there for seal sweller/softener,
