Castrol Magnatec engine oil - Please come in

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Was enquiring with a sponsor if the oil is a fully synthetic due to some promotion going on... I posted the question twice and somehow it got deleted or maybe server problem..... [sly]

 

The first time I posted the question, it disappeared.. because I use hp so I have tendency to refresh the screen to see if any reply but it says something like no such link..... so I posted the question the 2nd time and printscreen it..... viola the question disappeared again...

 

Then I went to Castrol website and checked and got the below from their website..... if you are changing Castrol magnatec oil...... please remember to check if it is part syn or fully syn... because if a promotion states synthetic... it may be either semi or fully syn

 

http://magnatec.castrol.com/faqs.html

 

Is Castrol MAGNATEC Synthetic or Part-Synthetic?

Castrol MAGNATEC 5W-30 A1 and Castrol MAGNATEC Diesel 5W-40 A3/B4 are fully synthetic formulations providing quicker circulation at extremely cold temperatures and superior performance at high operating temperatures.
Castrol MAGNATEC 10W-40 and 15W-40 are both part-synthetic. All grades of Castrol MAGNATEC contain Intelligent Molecules that cling to critical engine parts to instantly protect from the moment you turn the key.
For me, I going to avoid any workshop that never answer me if the oil is fully syn and worse if my question really got deleted.
I think sgcarmart may want to review on their star merchant criteria
Just a heads up guys...

If the oil "sticks" to your engine

 

when you drain to put in new oil

 

some of the old dirty oil will still

 

be stuck to your engine and

 

cannot come out?

 

:D

Most of the reviews in sgcarmart are actually "censored" before they are put up for the public to read?

 

Perhaps the mods can clarify since MCF is closely related to sgcarmart?

I saw your post on that promotional thread.

 

A rough rule of thumb is, when it's being advertised as synthetic, it means semi-synthetic. You must see the word "fully synthetic" if you are looking for full-synthetic oil.

Nope. I changed at 10k km.

The saving is only about $30 for the oil change at 15k km. So I just change at 10k km lah.

The butt feel with new oil is always good [drivingcar][drivingcar]
