That's oil, folks Jfhejaily Inter Lake, KalltpeU. Montam, Sunday, June 6, 1976 D-5 Oil cans may not be the moat stimulating totm of literature, but a few seconds spent scanning the can tops may prove worthwhile to the maintenance- conscious motorist. This is particularly true with the new motor oil coding system that recently went into effect. Under the new code, several parts of the coding system remain constant. The SAE stands for Society of Automotive Engineers and the numerals 10, 20, 30 and 40 still indicate the viscosity or flow characteristics of the oil. A designation sach as 10W30 indicates a multipurpose oil covering a wide Tiscosity range. The W means the oil is specially suited to wintertime use. In addition to the SAE viscosity rating, there is an API or American Petroleum Institute classification of ML (Motor Light), MM (Motor Medium) or MS (Motor Severe). All 19M or later models require the MS class of oil. While cans bearing the above API designations are still in circulation, they eventually will be supplanted with ones marked BA, SB, SC SD SE or CC. SA through SC are for light duty use such as lawn mower engines. SD oil is the generally accepted lubricant for most present-day cars. CC will be for diesel engines. The SE oils will be used for future engines with greater heat-resistant requirements. The SE oils might be recommended for your present car if you tow. a boat or trailer in high speed conditions on the long trip. CAR CARE QUIZ Pass this test and save cash!
