Castrol - Choose The Best Oil
CASTROL EDGE EXTENDED PERFORMANCE
As a result of increased demand for performance and fuel efficiency, the pressures in today’s engines have almost doubled in the last three decades. More pressure means more stress for the oil and more friction causing metal-to-metal contact that can increase wear and reduce efficiency. Underneath the hood, the pressure can reach 10 tons per square centimeter. That’s like five cars resting on a high heel. The only protection is a micro thin layer of motor oil. So, today’s cars need an oil that’s proven stronger for maximum performance. Castrol EDGE Extended Performance with fluid Titanium provides unsurpassed protection for critical engine parts, ensuring optimal performance – with the strength to enable an extended drain interval of up to 15,000 miles. Castrol EDGE Extended Performance is 3X stronger than Mobil 1 Extended Performance against viscosity breakdown.**

with fluid Titanium technology
*If your vehicle is under warranty, follow the oil change interval recommended by your manufacturer. Extended service is not recommended in severe service applications such as racing, frequent towing or hauling, commercial use, extremely dirty/dusty conditions or excessive idling.
**Tested in 5W-30 versus all major conventional brands and Mobil1 in the ASTM D6278 test.
CASTROL GTX MAGNATEC
Only Castrol GTX Magnatec is uniquely formulated to provide instant protection from the moment of start.
Did you know that up to 75% of engine wear occurs during warm up?1 Most oils drain from critical engine parts when the engine is turned off and need time to reach the peak protection temperature when turned back on. And with most car trips lasting less than 20 minutes, the motor oil’s wear protection isn’t fully activated.
The Intelligent Molecules in Castrol GTX Magnatec Defy Gravity.
The intelligent molecules in Castrol GTX MAGNATEC are what set it apart from other engine oils. These ultra-refined molecular components cling to the engine throughout all driving conditions, even when the engine is off.
When the engine stops, other oils drain back to the sump, but the intelligent molecules in Castrol GTX MAGNATEC don’t. They cling to critical engine parts like a magnet, providing a layer of protection from the start and throughout warm-up.

Castrol GTX is one of the world’s most trusted engine oils.
It’s more than just oil. It’s liquid engineering that protects against problems your engine faces every day. Severe driving conditions can cause the build-up of a thick, tar-like substance called sludge. Sludge can block your engines vital oil-ways like cholesterol – and if untreated it can rob an engine of its power and ultimately, its life.
WHAT CAUSES SLUDGE IN AN ENGINE?
Certain driving behaviors
Too much time between oil changes
Oil change intervals need to occur based on manufacturers’ recommended intervals. Delaying an oil change could make an engine more vulnerable to sludge build up.
