    i have 3 identical capacitors in my old oscilloscope. the ratings are .1uF 1600VDC. they seem to be leaking what seems to be similar to oil. it looks like the 2 next to eachother may be smoothing the high voltage to the CRT, but i may be wrong. i dont have a schematic. my question is, i dont know what these caps are made of, could i safely replace them with these?

    The answer is yes.
    But you have not told us the make and model of the oscilloscope.
