Effects of Hydrocarbon Types in Gasoline on Sludge Formation
Published October 02, 1991 by Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan in Japan
Event: JSAE Autumn Conference
Effects of hydrocarbon types in gasoline on the sludge formation were examined by using a laboratory-scale sludge simulator which was presented at the JSAE Autumn Convention in 1990. The sludge formation is found to be largely depended on the molecular structure and the concentration of hydrocarbons in gasoline. The composition of hydrocarbons in gasoline is therefore considered to be an important factor for factor for the engine oil evaluation with engines.
