AXLE AND UNIVERSAL OILS

As trucks and buses become heavier and the need for durability increases, axle fluids are more and more critical for vehicle reliability. Getting the right oil for your vehicle is key to ensuring your rear axle operates as designed and gets the maximum protection under demanding conditions.

 

Castrol, with over 100 years of experience in developing axle fluids, and being the choice of many leading truck and transmissions manufacturers for factory-fill products, offers a range of axle and universal fluids for your vehicle requirements; providing you the peace of mind that you are getting the right oil for your vehicle and keeping your vehicle on the road longer.
