Abstract : A procedure for determining fuel and water dilution of crankcase oil was developed. The procedure is applicable for determining gasoline, compression-ignition-engine (CIE) fuel, diesel fuel, and water as diluents or contaminants in sub-zero lubricating oil MIL-L-10295A, and SAE grades 10W, 20, and 30. Test results on samples of known composition gave an accuracy of = 1% on the sub-zero grade and = 2% on grades 10W, 20, 30. Lubricating oil MIL-L-10295A contains approximately 5% of light fractions coming within the distillation range of motor fuels. (Author)
