quote:And that's exactly what i'd like to find out. With the latest and greatest ester/PAO technology, is it possible to make a nearly 'perfect' 10w-30 lube with just a [email protected] base stock? I did remember someone ('Kule perhaps?) saying that the standard 30wt finished products are made with 4 cSt stocks. Scary how many VIIs must be in that... ferb!
Originally posted by Al: Well (and I could be wrong) I think conventional base stocks for say a 5W-30 are 4 cSt (@100C). Naturally VI improber is used to thet the 30 wt thickness and probably some pour point depressants as well for the lower end. A 10W-30 PAO would simply use a 10 cSt oil (@100C) [/QB]
