I work in a field where I am CONSTANTLY dealing with ruined rubber parts that are supposedly "oil resistant", and frequently labeled as such: Buna-N butterfly valves that swell and don't fully close, centrifuge lid seals that turn into some asinine version of bacon, shaker air springs that rot & burst.

Rubber simply has NO PLACE in an oily environment if it can POSSIBLY be avoided, and this idea of Ford's is patently RIDICULOUS.

Maybe it ain't "rubber"?
