Will It Run at 70 Below? A Progress Report on Arctic Winter Operation of Automotive Equipment 710717

This paper describes special winterization aids and petroleum products that have been developed to make possible the operation of automotive machinery, on an emergency basis, at temperatures as low as -70 F. A package of five basic petroleum products appropriate for use on the North Slope of Alaska has served there successfully for several years at temperatures consistently in the -40 F range. The products may be blended to obtain additional properties. The motor gasoline and diesel fuels developed for this package are discussed, along with the pour point and viscosity properties of Arctic winter lubricants-motor oils, ATF and torque fluids, hydraulic oils, gear oils, and greases.
