aceites puras


Explanation:
a no ser que estes traduciendo algo en el contexto petrolifero, en cuyo caso, seria 'petroleo puro'

EurodicAutom gives the following definitions for:

neat fuel = carburante puro
neat resin = resina pura.... resin to which nothing has been added.

Hope it helps.

'oils for precision machining'


Explanation:
Neat oils contain additives: EP (extreme pressure) and fatty oils, so I don't think they can be described as 'pure'. From a look at several web pages (including that below), it seems that 'neat oils' are used for 'precision machining'.

I can't suggest a translation other than 'oils for precision machining' (it won't come to me!), but maybe someone else's memory will be jogged
