Abstract

The technical requirements to achieve better fuel and energy efficiency via lubricants are growing more severe around the world. Lubricant formulation trends and base oil trends for fuel and energy efficiency are reported in this article. Group III mineral oil and GTL base oil are available in the market in large volumes and also show good properties for fuel and energy efficient lubricants. Especially for low viscosity engine oil, cooling oil for electric vehicle and hydraulic oil, GTL base oils shows good performance because of low volatility, high viscosity index, low density and high heat capacity. Required base oil properties for fuel and energy efficient lubricants and lubricant performance with Group III mineral oil and GTL base oil are reported in this article.
