Asking as a n00b, would you mind elaborating on why, or in what way, the cylinders and the bearings have different lubrication requirements?hardingfv32 wrote: ↑Wed May 24, 2017 4:49 pmIt would be my opinion that 'slippery' is not the main driver of lubrication formulation in these days. Very low viscosities are what reduce friction but this creates problems for the cylinders. The bearings have completely different lubrication requirements than the cylinders. These new formulations have anti-wear properties to deal with this.
As an example the IL mentioned as a 10W oil has the same wear properties/rate as a 30W Mobil 1 oil.
