“Optimisation of lube oil consumption in transient engine operation is gaining increasing attention from engine developers. Engine operation in extended stop-and-go phases can sporadically lead to unexpected oil consumption problems for inner-city driving. In view of this, Mahle has developed a tool that can perform a comprehensive oil consumption analysis for both steady-state and transient operating conditions. “
