Federal Mogul’s Explains Technology Will Rest on Engine Oil Quality

AMSOIL position with suppliers and technology forms allows it to get these advanced products out first, keeping ahead of the trends.  Other companies may take months or years before stock holders will allow for decreased profits over top tier additive technology.

This is why AMSOIL has the top reputation when it comes to protection and all out performance to true enthusiasts and those who push their vehicles to the max.

See what Federal Mogul’s Chief Technology Officer, Gian Maria Olivetti has to say in this very well detailed and interesting article.

j-a: How much impact do regional and global differences in fuel quality have on the engineering choices you make? 

GMO: There is still a difference, mainly related to the sulphur content, but it’s a bit more harmonised. You can find 10 PPM everywhere. In Eastern Europe, it’s still a little bit an issue. In China, it’s improving, but it’s still different.

The main issue we have now is the quality of the lubricant. The new generation of engines are going in the direction of very sophisticated low viscosity oils. We are talking about 5W30 to 0W20 and 0W10 and beyond to reduce the friction. That means that you have to put wear improver additives in the oil. Also, you have to have low ash oils that are compliant with aftertreatments.

Oil is becoming sophisticated, and to have sophisticated oil around the world is becoming much more difficult than having good fuel. Availability of quality oil is crucial for reliability.
