Quattro Pete, I share your skepticism. I'd guess the wording there was just the boiler plate for that entire Syntec line in that market.

I would tend to believe a foreign spec sheet since the oil's made in Belgium. Castrol US doesn't have a great record on spec sheets, and since it's not bottled in the gold container, it's probably a marketing decision to not list it.

It's certainly a possibility. I guess a VOA of the new stuff would help settle this.

So, how long has Castrol been making the 0W-30 in Belgium, and how long has the 0W-40 been available? I was in Autozone yesterday and saw both for the first time. Has the formulation of the 0W-30 changed and/or is the 0W-40 equally magical? Autozone had both labeled as Castrol Black.

Around half a year or so.

About 1.5 years.

Hard to say. The TDS certainly hasn't changed, but that's not saying much when it comes to Castrol.

The best deal on Castrol 0w-40 is at Walmart - $25/5qt jug.
