In other words, there is great demand for oil in the coming few years and high attention should be paid to find alternative resources. To overcome such issue, researchers start developing an alternative fuel and/or oil products from natural resource aiming to replace the fossil products which becomes the main ambitious of many researchers, environmental and government bodies especially in the developed countries such as Australia, US, and Europe. In this article, a comprehensive literature review is introduced and several issue are addressed with regards of the usage of newly developed lubricants which are based on plant oils.
