IMPORTANT ENHANCEMENTS TO CASTROL® VECTON® LONG DRAIN 10W-30 CK-4

PRODUCT NEWS / Post date:
1 February 2018

Castrol has upgraded the formulation of VECTON Long Drain 10W-30 CK-4, which has resulted in new product benefits.


Verified through recent field trial testing in the U.S. (over 1.5 million miles driven), VECTON Long Drain 10W-30 CK-4 can safely achieve 80,000-mile or 1,000-hour drain intervals.*


The enhanced product has a full slate of OEM approvals including:

  • API CK-4
  • JASO DH-2
  • CAT ECF-3
  • Cummins CES 20086
  • DDC DFS 93K222
  • Deutz DQC III-10LA
  • Ford WSS-M2C171-F1
  • Mack EOS-4.5
  • RVI RLD-4
  • Volvo VDS-4.5

Complete details can be found on the revised Product Data Sheet.

The upgraded formulation of VECTON Long Drain 10W-30 CK-4 no longer carries any GHS-hazardous designations. The GHS (!) diamond and warning statements have been removed from the revised Safety Data Sheet.

Lastly, as a result of BP Target Neutral – a program that invests in carbon-reduction projects around the world – all Castrol VECTON products are now certified “CO2-neutral” according to the internationally applicable PAS 2060 standard. Castrol is committed to making a difference with your fleet; one that leaves an impression that reflects positively on your business.


Over the next few months, Castrol will be updating all labels and selling materials to reflect the new extended drain claims, OEM approvals, and carbon neutral designation.


*Extending oil drain intervals should only be done in conjunction with a comprehensive used oil analysis program like Castrol Labcheck®
