COMBATING HIGH-SULFUR FUEL EFFECTS IN A TWO-CYCLE, HIGH-SPEED U.S. ARMY DIESEL ENGINE
Six lubricants were evaluated for their effectiveness in controlling the deleterious effects of using high sulfur diesel fuel. Two of the lubricants gave significant improvement in the condition of some engine areas; however, none of the engine oils tested would allow the continuous use of high sulfur fuel with no penalty in engine condition as compared to the use of low sulfur fuel.
