Abstract

This paper attempts to show that unsatisfactory engine life is not necessarily connected with the quality of the lubricating oil and that many of the faults often attributed to the lubricant are, in fact, controlled by incorrect engine design, excessive operating conditions or poor maintenance. Better results can be usually be obtained by the use of additive treated oils.
