CVT Gearbox Blood

What gearbox fluid for a R25 CVT gearbox ? I've read differing opinions on which fluid to use in a CVT from the 25 owners manual which states Dexron IID but I think fossils live in it, to someone who contacted ZF who recommend ESSO EZL799 ?

Re: this may help as they are nla for rovers
