A method for the determination of the optimum composition of motor oil formulations as developed with the use of laboratory investigations and of a mathematical model chosen for the evaluation of the data. The composition of the selected motor oil formulation was optimized from the aspect of the detergent dispersing efficiency. It follows from the results that the correlation between the composition and properties of the multicomponent colloidal system can be described at fair approximation by the selected methods of effect investigation and by the mathematical processes. The method is suitable for decreasing significantly the number of preliminary laboratory investigations of the motor oil formulations, ensuring in this way a more economical and more efficient research.
