Abstract : These briefing charts discuss: overview of petroleum consumption -- How much do we actually use? How does tribology (friction and wear) fit into the equation? If we get rid of all friction, how big of an impact will a frictionless engine have on petroleum consumption. If we reduce friction by x% how much petroleum can we save? What's the difference between commercial and military applications? What's being done (research) to reduce petroleum consumption, or, improve energy security?
