Castrol launches Fiat-compatible engine oil

Castrol has launched a new formulation of its car engine lubricant MAGNATEC, that has been designed to meet the 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 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 lubricant has been designed with Castrol’s DUALOCK Technology which offers better engine protection against warm-up wear and re-start 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.”

Castrol is part of the BP group and serves customers and consumers in the automotive, marine, industrial and energy sectors and it has been producing lubricants and greases for over 100 years.
