Motor oil is made from crude oil and is used to lubricate, clean, and cool engines. Types of motor oil include conventional, synthetic, diesel, bio-based, hybrid (blends of conventional and synthetic), and recycled oils. Motor oil varies in weight and viscosity, as well as additives that some manufacturers add to the oil during the refining process. A numerical code system created by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) grades motor oils according to viscosity--the higher the number between 0 and 60, the more viscous (thicker) the oil is. Most consumer motor oils are graded by two numbers, with the first number indicating cold weather (Winter or "W") performance.
This oil has a weight of SAE 0W-30, meaning it has an SAE viscosity rating of 0 in cold temperatures and a rating of 30 at normal operating temperature. Always check your vehicle's owner's manual to verify that this is the correct weight of motor oil for your vehicle.
Full Synthetic Oil
This oil is a full synthetic oil, meaning crude oil is not used in making it. Synthetic oil can be used in vehicle engines instead of motor oils refined from crude oil, and often provides superior mechanical performance over traditional motor oil, including increased gas mileage and reduced engine wear at extreme temperatures. Its complex method of production means it can often cost more than conventional motor oil.

What does that mean? This is a real, full synthetic, made with PAO/Esters. Most of the oil sold on the shelf and branded as "synthetic" are really just blends of high quality regular oil with a synthetic additive, but are not true synthetic, including those branded as Castrol Syntec. (all considered Class III oils)
The only other true, full synthetics that I know of are Amsoil, Royal Purple, Mobil1, and Redline, which are a bit more expensive.
The bobistheoilguy website, which bases its oil reviews on actual research and blind testing have found this to be a pure synthetic through chemical analysis. A lot of good information is on that website if you'd like to look into it further.
Some of the benefits of running a true synthetic are extended intervals between oil changes (oil change every 8-12K miles) and much more suitable to harsher driving conditions, such as big temperature changes, cold start, high rpm, stop and go, short trips. There are supposedly slight MPG improvements, but I haven't noticed much because I have been enjoying how smooth my car operates on this, with liberal throttle application.
This is a very well respected oil among auto enthusiasts, your car will thank you.
I am using this in my 2008 Volvo C30 T5
These specifications all speak to the quality of the product. In particular, Mercedes-Benz 229.5 (used in the majority of gasoline engine Mercedes cars the past decade) is particularly tough to meet.
The product has often been referred to as German Castrol because for many years it was produced in Germany. Now, you may still find it made in Germany, but some cases are showing up from Belgium. Rest assured, it is still the high quality product meeting the tough European specifications no matter where it is produced.
The low pour point of this product, approximately -50 Degree Centigrade suggests it has a significant percentage of Group IV Synthetic base stock in its formulation. Group III base stock is also high quality today, but the fact remains that Castrol is putting very high quality ingredients into this premier product. Of course, the oil companies today never tell us the exact formulation, so we can only take best guesses. Nevertheless, it is clear that it is a high quality product no matter what base stock is used because it does officially meet the tough European specifications listed on the bottle.
When you have a European vehicle and you use a motor oil that meets the manufacturer specifications, you can feel comfortable going to the full maintenance interval recommended by your manufacturer under normal conditions.
This is a highly recommended product.Read more ›
This is the oil you want for your sportier European car.
I track my cars and even under these harsh conditions, my oil tests always come back with excellent results. Even after 7500 miles on my daily driver, the tests showed the oil still had more life suggesting "try next oil change at 10k miles "
