DIESEL ENGINE OIL COMSUPTION STUDIES

An oil consumption test procedure has been developed in a 6-cyl, 425 hp, turbocharged and after-cooled diesel engine. This paper includes evaluations using the engine test procedure as well as various laboratory bench tests which measure the effects of viscosity, volatility, and oxidation stability. The data indicate that the problem of obtaining low diesel engine oil consumption may involve a complex combination of factors. /GMRL/
