Abstract

Gives the results of trials conducted in China which show the use of top‐grade, low smoke, part synthetic two‐stroke oil gives better performance and four times longer engine life than the four‐stroke engine oils generally used to lubricate two‐stroke engines in China. Sets out existing and proposed international standards for two‐stroke engine oils.

Abstract

Examines the issues surrounding fuel lubricity by explaining the background to the problems surrounding lubricity in diesel engines. As the need for low sulphur diesels arose it became clear that a universally accepted bench test was required and ISO working group SC7/WG6 was set up in 1992 to decide on a standard test. The group recommended that an HFRR (high frequency reciprocating rig) ball‐on‐flat test should be adopted. Describes the test methodology.
