comparitive viscosity chart

I have posted this chart to be used as a reference. It basically shows how to compare oil viscosity between different viscosity ratings. An example would be to show that an SAE 50wt ENGINE oil is close to the same viscosity of 90 weight GEAR oil at operating temps. It can also be used when comparing UOA's as some labs use Saybolt (aka: SUS) viscosity while some use Kinematic (aka: cSt) viscosity.
