ABSTRACT
The paper presents the research results of lubricity of selected vegetable oils, rapeseed oil methyl esters, and esters with addition of oleic acid. Higher wear of samples during lubrication by rapeseed oil methyl esters in comparison to the tested vegetable oils was obtained. The addition of oleic acid to esters resulted in the improvement of their lubricating properties.
