Fuel costs versus viscosity are shown, considering capital investment for a fuel treatment plant. Types of heavy oil and their treatment are discussed, and the overhaul and service life values for an engine running on intermediate fuel are given. Main components such as pistons, piston rings and cylinder liners are considered. Valve construction and materials are dealt with, and notes are included on thermal loading and manufacturing and maintenance standards.
