Synthetic Engine Oils - A New Concept 740120

A new class of synthetic fluids has been developed with specific physical and chemical properties, which can be used to formulate automotive engine lubricants with a performance range far exceeding that obtainable with conventional mineral-oil-based lubricants. New, unique synthetic engine lubricants are described that provide improved low-temperature fluidity and cold-starting performance, better high-temperature stability and engine cleanliness, outstanding viscosity stability, reduced oil consumption, better oil pressure retention, and reduction of engine wear.
The superiority of these new synthetic lubricants is documented with results of evaluations conducted in a wide range of engines and vehicles using standard and newly developed test procedures. Testing under severe rally and field conditions is also discussed.
