SYNTHETIC OILS FOR ARCTIC SERVICE

Catastrophic failures of high-output military diesel engines operating in the Alaskan winter compelled the Army to develop synthetic crankcase oils for the punishment of arctic service. The viscosity characteristics of these oils must permit cold engine cranking at temperatures as low as - 65 degrees F, but must also offer lubrication protection at the high cyclinder temperatures of these aluminum-block diesels. /GMRL/
