A Catalyst article about modern car engines and how they can run smoothly and propel drivers for thousands of miles without needing much attention, apart from refuelling with diesel or petrol. The engine also needs oil. The article describes engine oil, its composition and ingredients, how it works and how to recycle or dispose of it.

This article is from Catalyst: GCSE Science Review 2005, Volume 16, Issue 2.
