This second edition also considers the recent phenomenon of increased consolidation within the oil and petroleum additive arenas, which has resulted in fewer people for research, development, and implementation, along with fewer competing companies. Of significant importance is the consideration that a more consolidated oil industry -- in need of greater and longer-term returns on investments -- may be less apt to respond to automobile manufacturers' requirements for rapid specification changes.
The Automotive Lubricants Reference Book, Second Edition addresses these and many other important issues by providing a solid foundation to this important element of automotive engineering. Comprehensive and timely, this important publication is an ideal reference for anyone involved in the automotive lubricants industry.
