TESTING THE FUEL ECONOMY CHARACTERISTICS OF ENGINE OILS

This paper presents new techniques for the interpretation of engine and vehicle results on prototype fuel-efficient motor oils. A case history is presented which follows the component selection process through laboratory friction and bench engine screening tests. The capabilities and limitations of the available test methods are discussed.
