What is a Porsche approved hydraulic fluid? Is this another dealer item?

Pentosin CHF 11S

if you don't have a manual, contact the dealer and they can supply you a new one ( or you can probably find one on ebay ). also a lot of users recommend getting the workshop manual. from what i understand it has an answer to every question in the world...

partsgeek sells the fluid for $19. not sure of the price anywhere else. ( not an endorsement or anything for partsgeek, but i do use them from time to time for parts ).

download a manual here (pdf link):

you can also let search be your friend.

I do have a manual. Its at home and I'm at work and i needed to pick it up on my way home . I called the dealer to find out if i can order this and they told me that for a Boxster they sell Penttosin CHF202 but the manual says Pettosin 11S as stated previously. Are these interchangeable?
