FUEL CONSERVING LUBRICANTS FOR DIESEL ENGINES
The literature reports that diesel engines respond to lubricants optimized in viscometrics and composition to reduce metal-to-metal friction and fuel comsumption. Conservation of the world's hydrocarbons requires that lubricants be so optimized. This study shows that mineral-based lubricants for high- and medium-speed diesel engines can be formulated to improve fuel economy by incorporating suitable additives.
