This paper deals with the performance of both semisynthetic and full synthetic automotive gear lubricants in laboratory axle efficiency tests. The development and use of laboratory models for the purpose of predicting lubricant related fuel economy benefits in actual field service is explained. Using these laboratory techniques, improvements in axle efficiency provided by selected synthetic based lubricant formulations are demonstrated.
