Lubrication Experience in Methanol-Fueled Engines under Short-Trip Service Conditions 831701

In order to assess the field needs of engine oils to be used in methanol-fueled vehicles, six oils were run in a fleet test over a ten-month period under short-trip service conditions. The results from the field test were compared with results with the six oils in the laboratory engine tests which have been used to predict field performance with methanol fuel. A lack of correlation between the field test and the laboratory engine tests suggests that the laboratory tests need revisions to better serve field needs.
