It's hard to imagine Cuba conquered space so long ago with the Castro Convertibles program and only just now got into the oil business. They've probably been making it for a long time but not exporting.

Sorry about that guys; I'm at work, doing this with my iPhone and thought I'd try to post a pic of this new to me bottle of Castrol. The old bottle next to it didn't have Dexos certification or HTO-06 .
So maybe Castrol wants to go after Pennzoil; wouldn't hurt for them to post real numbers etc on the PDS to shore up their reputation around here.

SAE is a US deal and other countries have their own certifications?

API is a US deal. SAE is international, I'm pretty sure.

My exact first thought LOL

Looks bike casterol is focusing on the Rings now and not the Pistons with that new picture. I remember last year there oil spinning around a crankshaft pic was new on their oil.

So. no more gold bottles or is Castrol still doing their best to confuse us? ic2 formerly separated rename products now re- joined in one label with the color of the former and I can only figure this out if there are no more gold bottles....

And no 0W-30 or 0W-40 but they had Syntec 0W-30, yes? And 10W-30??.... & 10W-40? They uded to have the 5w 40 up as well (maybe not Walmart)
