Ester oils have the habit to make the rubber seals swell,depending if it is a true ester oil or a so called "ester-hybrid"(I know,this is not the correct chemistry term,but easier to explain...).An "ester-hybrid" oil has about 20% synthetic PAO oil in it,to prevent the seals from swell...
So if it is pure ester oil,do not use it.If it is a "hybrid",it is similar to what Redline offers for way less money...
