Abstract:

A selection of laboratory, bench and engine tests was initiated in parallel with an analytical program intended to characterize typical synthetic base stocks and additive packages. Since the Armys principal automotive crankcase lubricant specifications are MIL-L-46152 commercialadministrative vehicles and MIL-L-2104C tactical and combat vehicles, a mineral-based lubricant qualified to both of these specifications was included for reference, as were two synthetic gas turbine lubricants qualified to the USAF MIL-L-7808G and the USN MIL-L-23699B specifications.
