In conjunction with the vehicle test, the field performance of four Military engine oils was investigated. The test lubricatns consisted of two oils qualified under specification MIL-L-2104B REO-191 and Contract Oil, one oil qualified under specification MIL-L-45199B REO-194, and one oil qualified under both the MIL-L-2104B and MIL-L-45199B specifications.
