RE: Hydraulic fluid

Went to our New Holland dealer here and all they had on the shelf was
Hydraulic Oil part number M6C59A which is petroleum based, as per the
label.  I gave the parts guy the part number quoted below M6c34-A-1 and
they said it cross referenced to the petroleum based oil.  Are my guys
out of touch or what?
