Abstract
A method for the detection and identification of fuel components in diesel lubricating oil is described. The method uses a capillary gas chromatograph coupled to a quadrupole mass spectrometer to separate, detect and identify diluents in the oil. Accurate determination of the level of fuel dilution of a diesel lubricating oil sample using GC/MS is shown to be dependent upon a number of factors including the source of the fuel, the age of the fuel, the thermal history of the fuel diluted diesel oil sample and the availability of a suitable sample of fuel to prepare standard response versus concentration curves.
