"resistivity, ohms per circular mil-ft
( theres a chart)
Silver 9.56,
Copper 10.06"

On page 1181 of the same text( this may or may not be relevant)
" Silver has a high degree of resistance to hot concentrated organic acids..."

I believe combustion byproducts can tend to be acidic, and why motor oils are alkaline - to counteract same acids that migrate into the oil over time...
