Can diesel engine oil be used for gasoline generator lacking engine oil?
Posted by Admin | 16 Jan
Can't! Engine lubricating oil can be divided into gasoline engine oil and diesel engine oil. Although gasoline engines and diesel engines also work under high temperature, high pressure, high speed and high load conditions, there are still big differences between the two.
1. The compression ratio of a diesel engine is very high, more than twice that of a gasoline engine. Its main parts are subject to high temperature, high pressure, and impact much greater than that of a gasoline engine. Therefore, some parts are made of different materials.
2. More anti-corrosion agents should be added to the formula of diesel engine oil, so that a protective film can be formed on the surface of the bearing pad during use to reduce the corrosion of the bearing pad and improve its wear resistance. If it is added to the diesel engine, the bearing pad will be prone to spots, hemp pits, and even flakes during use.
3. The sulfur content of diesel oil is higher than that of gasoline. This harmful substance will form sulfuric acid or sulfurous acid during the combustion process. More additives that resist oxidation and make the oil more alkaline should be added to the formula. If there is acid gas rushing in, it can play a certain neutralizing effect, so as not to cause the oil to oxidize and deteriorate too quickly. Gasoline engine oil does not have such strict requirements in this regard. If it is used in diesel engines, it will quickly deteriorate and become invalid due to the corrosion of the above-mentioned acid gases. Therefore, gasoline generators cannot use diesel engine oil!
