Questions and answers on how to convert things from one unit or system to another
Forum rules
Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Hi there. Can anyone give me a relative idea of how centistokes equates to say, motor or gear oil? For example, what centistokes of silicone oil would be near your basic 90 wt hydrocarbon gear oil in viscosity? Thanks in advance. Marici

The viscosity of 90 weight gear lube is similar to 50 weight motor oil. The gear lube spec is 13.5 to 24 centistokes at 100C. The motor oil spec is 16.3 to 21.9 cSt at 100C.
