The Impact of Passenger Car Motor Oil Phosphorus Levels on Automotive Emissions Control Systems 961898
A 100,000-mile fleet test in nine gasoline-powered passenger cars was carried out. The impact of motor oil phosphorus levels on engine durability, oil degradation, and exhaust emissions has been previously described. The results of additional emissions control systems studies, and measurements of the engine oil additive elements which are present on the catalysts, are now presented. These studies include conversion efficiencies for the aged catalyst at the end of the test by a combination of light-off experiments, air/fuel sweep tests, and an auto-driver FTP. The performance of the lambda sensors is also presented. The relationships between engine oil additive levels and composition and emissions systems durability is presented.
