Looks like your out voted
Some of the manufacturers including KingTech, will void your warranty for using Aeroshell 500. 'Kinda makes peoples opinions not relevant.....

Not my deal at all, my builder has been using it for over twenty years and swears by it. I'm a full scale mechanic type and I hate the exposure of, bascially, any lubricant used on a full scale turbine, is just loaded with carcinogens.

JetCat was the first to come out with an oil having no carcinogens, anti-static additive with 1qt bottles making mixing easy, and that's why I went that way. As mentioned, there are now other oils without the carcinogens available.
