Afton Chemical Corp. will present on the subject of “Bumper to Bumper Fuel Economy” at the 19th Annual F&L Conference in Bangkok, Thailand on March 14th, 2013. By looking beyond driver influence, Dr. Ian Bell, will present a framework and supporting specialized tests that lead to advancements in measurable energy and fuel economy savings.
Dr. Bell’s presentation will include findings gained from the Afton-Artemis Continuous Aging Fuel Economy (A-CAFÉ) test, which takes into account various energy-related factors, including: fuel quality and resulting engine cleanliness, fuel additive technology, transmission fluid performance profiles, and the stability of viscosity and friction modifiers in engine oils.
By approaching the topic of fuel economy from a ‘bumper to bumper’ perspective, Afton Chemical is able to apply energy savings projections to the existing, and new global car-parc. The knowledge gained from the A-CAFÉ test offers actionable insights to hardware manufacturers and oil companies as the global transportation industry works towards achieving evolving emission targets.
