Base oils are critical to the effective functioning of a finished lubricant. Although the technology that enables the lubricant to perform as expected is contained within the additive package, that must be used at the correct treat rate and in accordance with the technology provider’s instructions, the use of the correct base oil in the right quantities is equally as important.
