We recommend the use of grease, particularly for automotive applications. The mineral grease is used to coat the journal and to hold the piece of Plastigauge in position. The silicone grease should be applied to the surface of the shell to prevent the deformed Plastigauge strip from dislodging or breaking apart when the two surfaces are re-opened. These steps make it easier for the user to take their measurement using the gauge card provided.
