Abstract:
When gasoline-fueled vehicles are operated in consumer service, the oil used to lubricate the engine plays a key role in engine cooling, reducing friction, maintaining efficient operation, and optimizing fuel economy. The effects of normal vehicle operation on oil deterioration have a direct impact on fuel consumption. The authors have observed substantial differences between the deterioration of engine oil and resulting fuel economy under real-world driving conditions, and the deterioration of oils and resulting fuel economy in the standard laboratory test used to assess fuel economy in North America, the Sequence VID engine test (ASTM D7589). By analyzing the data from vehicles and comparing these data to the Sequence VID the authors have proposed and evaluated several changes to the Sequence VID test that improve the correlation with real-world operation and improve test discrimination.
