High-Performance Organic Friction Modifier Retains Performance
Studies from the United States Environmental Protection Agency indicated that 60 percent of greenhouse gas emissions emanate from light-duty vehicles (passenger cars and light-duty trucks). This discovery led to the 2012 Clean Air Act that mandated increased fuel efficiency standards. Specifically, U.S. standard EPA-420-F-12-051 established a required fuel efficiency for light-duty vehicles of 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025.
