To provide a general equation for finding out viscosity of lubricating oils at different temperatures and ages.
Based on previous works and a case study on field, a general equation was formulated which relates viscosity‐temperature‐age of lubricant.
The equation is very simple and a good consistency was found.
This equation will help the designers/manufacturers to recommend the correct grade of lubricating oil.
This type of relationship was never reported earlier.
