What's up with the 'u.s.' after the weight?

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.

I am pleased they dropped the 'Edge with Syntec Technology' story.

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)
