Castrol MAGNATEC 0W-20 – Clinging Molecules Protect From The Start
More people live in cities than ever before, and increasingly busy driving became a feature of life. On every single trip we make, we encounter situations on the road that make us stop, wait, and start again. Research shows that even a normal driver makes as many as 18000* stop-starts per year. And all that idling in traffic or waiting at junctions causes damaging wear in your engine.
Castrol MAGNATEC STOP-START specifically protects your engine in busy traffic conditions, offering 20%** more protection from damaging stop-start engine wear. Castrol MAGNATEC STOP-START contains intelligent molecules that cling and form a self-healing layer, so it’s always ready to protect at each of the critical stages of stop-start driving.
Problem: All cars, even those with the latest stop-start engine technology can’t perform at their best in traffic congestion. Congestion has dramatically increased over the past 10 years, causing engine wear and fuel wastage.
Solution: Suitable for the latest stop-start engine technology, Castrol MAGNATEC STOP-START combines DUALOCK molecules with our most efficient fully synthetic base oils, to dramatically reduce both warm-up and stop-start wear by up to 50% and save up to 3.95% of fuel a year during congested driving.
Benefit: Non-stop protection from every start, even for vehicles with the latest stop-start engine technology.
- Tested versus the Sequence IVA API SN wear limit.
- Tested versus the CEC OM646LA ACEA wear limits.
- Compared to an industry reference 15W-40 oil as tested by ISP in 2015 in the EUDC (for highways), for EPA NYCC (for cities) and Castrol Ultra-Idle Cycle (for congestion). Assumptions: Annual mileage of 12,000km; representative split od driving (60% on highway, 30% in city, 10% in congestion). Actual results under road conditions may vary according to vehicle type, driving conditions and style.
