SOME details of practical tests with synthetic lubricating oils, developed during war time in Germany, have recently been published, and the following is an abstract from an article by H. Külbel and A. Meusel, entitled Ueber die praktische Erprobung synthetischer Schmieröle, published in a recent issue of Konstruktion (1951, Vol. 3, No. 7). These tests relate to the use of these lubricants in automobile engines and also as steam cylinder lubricants. A preliminary note by the Editor also points out that these lubricants may prove useful in marine diesel engines burning heavy bunker oil, since they appear to possess the property of softening the hard carbon formed by these fuel oils.
