I'm getting sick of searching the net for this.

 Does any one have a
dielectric chart for transformer oil handy? I need a plate spacing chart for
a capacitor built with plates in a tank of transformer oil. That's the
ultimate self healing capacitor!

It's also in most of the oil spec sheets.

You only get that high of a breakdown if the oil is dry and clean. Little particles or water droplets rapidly reduce the breakdown strength.
