THE ROAD TO CLEANER ENGINES

Engine sludge builds up in engines when dirt and other particles combine to form a thick, tar-like substance. If left untreated it can severely affect performance. This isn’t something that drivers can ignore - research shows that engine sludge will eventually affect almost all engines. Castrol GTX fights the causes of sludge to clean and protect engines. Here’s how it works.

HELPS EXTEND ENGIE LIFE

The formation of engine sludge can be accelerated by factors such as heat and frequent short trips. Specially formulated to fight the causes of sludge, Castrol GTX helps to extend engine life by cleaning away these deposits and protecting against them forming in future.

KEEPING ENGINES CLEANER FOR LONGER

Castrol GTX displaces engine sludge, surrounding and suspending particles until they can be flushed away at the next oil change. This makes it particularly effective in keeping engines clean. The Seq VH test is acknowledged worldwide as the standard for performance in this area.


Castrol GTX doesn’t just meet these standards. It exceeds them by 35%**

THE POWER OF 3X-PROTECT

Engine sludge has three main causes: heat, contaminants and short trips. Extreme HEAT can break down oil, which forms sludge when combined with dirt particles. Water, unburned fuel and other CONTAMINANTS can all react with oil to create sludge. Contaminants that create engine sludge are more easily absorbed by the oil during SHORT TRIPS.

 

In industry testing, Castrol GTX is proven to fight each of these causes thanks to its 3X-Protect formula.

RECORD BREAKING PERFORMANCE

New York resident Irv Gordon bought his Volvo P1800 in 1966. 47 years later it became the first non-commercial vehicle to drive 3 million miles. Irv sadly died in 2018, but his legacy lives on and with over 3.25 million miles on the clock, his beloved car is still breaking records today. 


Irv’s advice for getting the most out of your car was simple. Follow the factory service manual, replace worn or broken parts immediately, don’t let anyone else drive your car and always use the turn signal. But there was another secret to Irv’s longevity. Despite travelling millions of miles and undergoing hundreds of services, he insisted on using just one oil. Castrol GTX.
