How Will Fuels/Lubricants Evolve In The Era Of Efficiency?


The automotive industry is undergoing a shift towards greater efficiency and lower emissions, driven by regulatory measures and government initiatives. OEMs are introducing new hardware advancements to meet emissions targets, but high-performance lubricants and fuels are also critical to achieving full potential.

These fluids can lead to fuel economy benefits and enable technology like GPFs and DPFs, which mitigate the impact of emissions from modern drivetrains. Low SAPS lubricants are essential for long-term emissions compliance and reducing DPF blockage, which can impact power and efficiency. Lower-viscosity formulations can also lead to fuel economy gains by reducing friction between moving engine parts.

Fuel quality is crucial for new engine hardware’s ability to run cleanly and efficiently, with additives helping eliminate carbon buildup in GDI engines and optimizing diesel fuel for engine cleanliness. Renewable diesel fuel can reduce carbon intensity. Untreated renewable diesel’s inherent lubricity requires the right additives to prevent premature wear in metal-on-metal applications.

High-performance additive chemistry will be increasingly essential in fuels and lubricants as the industry moves toward a more fuel-efficient future. Strong partnerships across the value chain – between fuel and lubricant marketers, additive suppliers, and OEMs – can help make this happen.
