Abstract : A multivehicle fleet test utilizing U.S. Air Force general-purpose vehicles was organized and conducted from approximately March 1980 through June 1981 at the request of the Triservices through the Joint Deputies for Laboratory Committee (JDLC). The objective of the test was to determine through accummulation of field data if use of synthetic engine oil would extend oil drain intervals, reduce oil filter changes, eliminate sludge buildup, prolong engine life, give advantages in fuel consumption, improve cold weather starting, and reduce operational cost. The synthetic oils chosen were of different manufacture and were assigned the color codes Yellow and Green. The baseline, or control oil was a mineral oil of normal procurement and stockage. This oil was color coded Blue.
