Why do so many workshops recommend Castrol to their customers? It’s simple. The best mechanics care about the oil that goes into their customers’ cars and motorcycles. They know that nothing protects engines better than Castrol, so they wouldn’t be happy recommending anything less. They understand that not every 0W-20 or 10W-30 is the same, because engine oil is more than just a commodity. They truly believe that liquid engineering makes engines last longer.
We are proud to know that Castrol is the only oil that many mechanics and technicians will ever pour into a customer’s engine, or their own. So we are pleased to offer the best support program in the industry: providing instant access to Data Sheets, training whenever it’s required and marketing programs to help make it as easy and affordable as possible when you recommend Castrol to a valued customer.
We know it can sometimes be hard for customers to understand the differences between the many Castrol oils available to them. That's why we offer you free online and instructor-led training. These provide you with the tools and knowledge you need to explain the differences between different types of oil, and exactly why a particular oil is the best choice for their engine. Customers already trust your expert recommendation. Castrol training simply helps you to make those recommendations with even more confidence. That's a fact whether you’re advising a customer to choose the latest full synthetic like Castrol Edge, or our most trusted high mileage oil from the GTX brand.

With so many different OEM specifications for engine oil, recommending exactly the right motor oil isn’t as quick and easy as it used to be. It’s also true that your workshop’s main concern will always be to steer clear of doing anything that could void a warranty. So it’s good to know you can check the exact lubricant specification for every vehicle before every fill, using the clear and simple Data Sheets you can access through here.
Today’s smaller but more powerful engines generate amazing internal pressures, demanding full synthetic oils that protect and flow from the moment the engine starts.

That’s why we have created an essential resource for every workshop: a motor oil and fluid finder that makes it easy to make the right call on anything from gear oil to grease, for everything from supercars to motorcycles.
