Mtbf?

Hello.

I was just wondering about the Mtbf thing :stuck_out_tongue: Most of my (normal)engines is around 65-75k range and is that good or bad? I think it seems very short, I would expect a engine to last at least a couple of hundred thousand km. Am I completely misunderstanding the Mtbf or…? :stuck_out_tongue:
Thanks :smiley:

The MTBF is the time between failures, considering that you dont maintenance the engine.

For example:
A 65k MTBF engine CAN fail after 65001km IF there was no service like OilChange/New Filters/Timing Belt.

Yeah, that makes more sense.

Thanks.

Why don’t you try google? Fex:
