Engine Oil Performance Requirements and Reformulation for Future Gasoline Engines and Systems 961146

The main factors influencing the development of engine oils for the future are environmental protection, resource utilization and customer satisfaction. Improving engine oil no longer means just providing adequate durability but also maximizing fuel efficiency, minimizing detrimental effects on emission systems and maximizing useful life. Opportunities for improvements in these areas, discussed in detail in this paper, will be considered by ILSAC (International Lubricant Standardization and Approval Committee formed by the American Automobile Manufacturers Association, AAMA, and Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association, JAMA) in developing the ILSAC GF-3 standard to be introduced around the year 2000.
