Castrol magnatec stop-start

Why do you need engine oil specially designed to protect against stop-start wear?

All that constant stopping and starting in traffic causes increased microscopic engine wear

Because of increasingly busy traffic, drivers today are experiencing more and more stop-start driving. Even a normal driver can stop and start as many as 18000 times a year. 

Frequent stopping and starting involves more decelerating, more idling and more accelerating, causes pieces of metal to be abraded off the surfaces of critical engine parts, increasing microscopic engine wear.

Protect your engine with Castrol MAGNATEC STOP-START

Castrol MAGNATEC STOP-START contains special molecules that form a self-healing layer that constantly protects against stop-start wear, providing up to 20% better stop-start wear protection*. So even if some molecules are knocked off in the process of protecting your engine, others rush in to restore the protective layer.
*As tested in the industry OM646LA engine test which incorporates idling and periods of stop-start operation.
