WHAT TYPE OF ENGINE OIL TO CHOOSE

There are so many engine oils out there, which one is right for your vehicle? Well, there are three basic types: mineral, part synthetic and full synthetic.

Mineral oils are the least refined of the three, which means they cost less, but also provide less protection, performance and economy than the other options.

Part synthetic engine oils are a blend of mineral oil and synthetic oil, to give added performance, but still at a lower cost than full synthetic engine oils.

Full synthetics are the most expensive engine oils as they are highly refined, but offer the best and protection and economy to absolutely every vehicle.

WHY SHOULD YOU CHOOSE FULL SYNTHETIC ENGINE OIL?

Most modern cars will already use a full synthetic engine oil, however older cars can still benefit from using a full synthetic oil.*

Full synthetic oils offer your engine the best possible performance and delivering optimum protection from the moment you start the engine. They work harder in all scenarios that put stress on an engine, such as driving in extreme temperatures, towing heavy loads and sitting in stop-start traffic.

Depending on the viscosity your manual recommends, synthetic oil can also improve the performance and fuel economy of your vehicle, and will even stay stronger for longer between drain intervals than traditional mineral or part synthetic oils. 

WHAT DOES VISCOSITY MEAN?

Viscosity is a measurement of the thickness and 'ease of flow' in any liquid. For example, water is a thin liquid that flows freely, so we say that it has a low viscosity. Honey, on the other hand, is relatively thick and flows more slowly. So we describe honey as having a high viscosity. It's also worth noting that honey flows more easily - and is therefore less viscous - when it is slightly warm. Engine oil behaves in pretty much the same way, which is why mechanics will usually run an engine for a minute or two before draining used engine oil away to replace it.

WORLDS FIRST CARBON NEUTRAL LUBRICANTS

Castrol became the first lubricants company in the world to offer a certified carbon neutral product to our customers with the launch of Castrol Professional in 2014. Since then, Castrol has worked hard to reduce the carbon footprint of Castrol Professional by over 15% whilst millions of motorists have benefitted from using a carbon neutral engine oil.
