  • MAGNATEC 0W-30 with unique DUALOCK Technology is designed for Fiat GS1 and DS1-compatible engines*
  • New product provides compatible vehicles with 50% better engine protection from warm-up wear** and re-start wear**

Castrol has launched a new formulation of its renowned car engine lubricant, MAGNATEC, that has been designed to meet the specific needs of Fiat GS1 and DS1-compatible engines*, found in models such as the Fiat Panda and 500, Jeep Compass and Jeep Renegade, and Alfa Romeo Mito. Castrol MAGNATEC 0W-30 GS1/DS1 features a unique, patented DUALOCK Technology that provides car engines with 50% better protection from warm-up wear** and re-start wear**.


Castrol MAGNATEC 0W-30 GS1/DS1 is designed for use across all Fiat petrol and diesel vehicles where Fiat recommends an ACEA C2 or earlier specification 0W-30 lubricant. The new product is the first Castrol engine oil to meet Fiat 9.55535-GS1 and Fiat 9.55535-DS1 specifications.


Castrol MAGNATEC clings like a magnet to vulnerable metal surfaces and moving parts in an engine, to provide protection during warm-up. The unique molecules in DUALOCK Technology lock together with the other MAGNATEC molecules to provide enhanced protection against engine wear. 


Shailendra Gupte, Marketing Director at Castrol Europe, said: “This new customised MAGNATEC formulation is designed for use in all Fiat models with GS1 and DS1-compatible engines. Castrol’s long association with Fiat is further strengthened with this new product, enabling more car owners to benefit from the superior engine protection that Castrol MAGNATEC provides.”
