Title: Lubricant Formulations to Enhance Engine Efficiency in Modern Internal Combustion Engines

Abstract

The research program presented aimed to investigate, develop, and demonstrate low-friction, environmentally-friendly and commercially-feasible lubricant formulations that would significantly improve the mechanical efficiency of modern engines without incurring increased wear, emissions or deterioration of the emission-aftertreatment system.
