Abstract:

A procedure for determining fuel and water dilution of crankcase oil was developed. The procedure is applicable for determining gasoline, compression-ignition-engine CIE fuel, diesel fuel, and water as diluents or contaminants in sub-zero lubricating oil MIL-L-10295A, and SAE grades 10W, 20, and 30. Test results on samples of known composition gave an accuracy of 1 on the sub-zero grade and 2 on grades 10W, 20, 30. Lubricating oil MIL-L-10295A contains approximately 5 of light fractions coming within the distillation range of motor fuels. Author
