|Significance and Use|
5.1ï¿½Test Methodâ€”The data obtained from the use of this test method provide a comparative index of the fuel-saving capabilities of automotive engine oils under repeatable laboratory conditions. A BL has been established for this test to provide a standard against which all other oils can be compared. The BL oil is an SAE 20W-30 grade fully formulated lubricant. The test procedure was not designed to give a precise estimate of the difference between two test oils without adequate replication. The test method was developed to compare the test oil to the BL oil. Companion test methods used to evaluate engine oil performance for specification requirements are discussed in the latest revision of Specification D4485.
5.2ï¿½Useâ€”The Sequence VIF test method is useful for engine oil fuel economy specification acceptance. It is used in specifications and classifications of engine lubricating oils, such as the following:
5.2.3ï¿½SAE Classification J304.
5.2.4ï¿½SAE Classification J1423.
1.1ï¿½This test method covers an engine test procedure for the measurement of the effects of automotive engine oils on the fuel economy of passenger cars and light-duty trucks with gross vehicle weight 3856â€‰kg or less. The tests are conducted using a specified spark-ignition engine with a displacement of 3.6â€‰L (General Motors)4 on a dynamometer test stand. It applies to multi viscosity oils used in these applications.
1.2ï¿½The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.2.1ï¿½Exceptionsâ€”Where there is no direct equivalent such as the units for screw threads, National Pipe threads/diameters, tubing size, and single source supply equipment specifications. Additionally, Brake Fuel Consumption (BSFC) is measured in kilograms per kilowatt-hour.
1.3ï¿½This test method is arranged as follows:
1.4ï¿½This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.5ï¿½This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
