    Abstract

    This paper evaluates the requirements of crankcase lubricants for France and Europe by reviewing current automotive practices.

    The present status of motor oil consumption for both gasoline and diesel engines is examined for France and other European countries, and future developments of engine oils are discussed.

    The specific requirements for diesel and gasoline engines currently produced in Europe are listed. In this field there are some marked differences from corresponding U.S. engines and these are reviewed.

    The user's situation as regards the lubricating requirements of automcbiles now being operated in France and Western Europe are discussed, and the extent to which the producers of lubricating oil can satisfy these needs is reviewed.

    The paper presents a forecast on engines and lubricant developments, and the possible impact of the Common Market.
