With both increased viscosity and increased % of oil in the spray, there is an increase in the amount of reduction of CO2 adsorption. There was, however, no great difference between the oils of 80 and 110 viscosity. There was a further reduction in CO2 absorption following the application of a 2nd spray. With the vegetable oils the recovery of the leaves was less than with the mineral oils.
