"I know without a doubt that Castrol RX Super provides the protection we need for our engines. Having serviced one of our truck’s engines for over 2.5 million kilometres, solely using Castrol RX Super, it is clear that Castrol RX Super goes the distance.
With this particular engine, we had always run it in a singular trailer application, max GCM 42T and 20,000km service intervals with a mix of line and local haul. We look for longevity and reliability in the engine oil that we use and Castrol RX Super had provides us the security we needed to keep our engines protected.”
Glen Stephan - National Fleet Manager of Scott’s Refrigerated Freightways and long-time supporter of Castrol RX Super
Protecting a truck engine for 2.5 million kilometres is no mean feat. To see how Castrol RX Super 15W-40 performed we enlisted a technical consultancy firm to independently evaluate the condition of the engine and its components.
Castrol identified a truck engine within Scott’s Refrigerated Freightways fleet that was known to have achieved a high number of on-road kilometres without reported incident.
The engine was stripped down at a third party workshop and the components were examined visually and photographed by the author. In addition, some components were measured for wear.
SIt was found that Castrol RX Super 15W-40 demonstrated superior protection in key areas of soot cleanliness and wear control in critical engine components.
Research is Castrol's lifeblood. Our technology team has invested millions of dollars and developed new, unique and patented technologies to create a better family of diesel engine oils.
Durashield™ Boosters are new technology, exclusive to Castrol. They’ve been specially engineered to fight wear, deposits and corrosion, the main causes of engine damage, to deliver superior protection in 3 ways.
