Re: 3516 Daily oil consumption

The G3516 turbocharged engine has a BSOC brake specific oil consumption) rate of approximately 0.0007 lb/bhp-hr.  You can use this formula to calculate the oil usage rate for your engine.

 

Here is the formula you can use:

 

lbs/hr or gals/hr   =       BSOC  X  eng power rating  X    load factor

 

Divide the result of total lbs/hr or gals/hr  by 7.5 lbs and you get total gallons per hour estimated oil usage.

 

If you have further questions, please continue to ask.
