What is the Significance of Acid Number and Base Number in Used Engine Oil Analysis? Which is More Important? 

Acid number represents the free acids that can corrode parts. Base number represents the amount of original acid-neutralizing additive remaining and, hence, the expected life of the oil. While both are important, more TLT readers came down in favor of base number or total base number as the more critical metric.
