Can Engine Oil And Gear Oil Be Interchangeable?
In fact, the internal combustion engine oil and gear oil are used in different conditions, the composition and purposes are different; these two kinds of oil can not be replaced with each other. The internal combustion engine oil is for high temperature working environment, where the temperature repeatedly changes. It must be easy to mix with fuel, as incomplete combustion of mixed gas will produce impurities. The condition for lubricating requires the internal combustion engine oil to have a good abrasion resistance, excellent oxidation stability under high temperature for the oil not easy to deteriorate, or generate carbon and other substances. It also need to have good viscosity temperature performance. The oil can maintain a more stable viscosity under the condition of large temperature difference. In addition, the internal combustion engine oil also requires good dispersion, corrosion resistance and foam resistance.
