Oil change, shmoil change: Argonne creates regenerating engine coating


Chicago Tribune

Scientists at Argonne National Laboratory have developed a new coating that could make engines much more durable — and maybe let drivers go longer between oil changes.

The coating interacts with engine oil to create a film that helps protect the moving parts of the engine from wear and...
