Abstract : The U.S. Army TARDEC Fuels & Lubricants Technology Team has developed a Single Common Powertrain Lubricant (SCPL), designed to consolidate multiple military lubricant specifications into a single product, or single specification. This report covers the long term field demonstration programs of the SCPL conducted at Ft. Benning GA, Ft. Wainwright AK, and Ft. Bliss TX, representing basic, arctic, and desert climate conditions respectively. Results from each testing location support technical findings during the development phases of the SCPL program, and demonstrate that the SCPL is a capable drop in replacement for currently utilized MIL-PRF lubricants providing equivalent to, and in most cases improved performance to currently fielded POL products.
