This shows that, consumers are highly dependent on stakeholders in the automotive supply chain for high-performance gear and engine oils that withstand extreme temperatures and Kinematic Viscosity is a measure of the fluids resistance to flow and shear under the forces of gravity, or how easily the oil flows to the different parts of the engine. Viscosity index. A: The viscosity index of a fluid (usually oil) is calculated from its viscosity at 40 and 100°C.
