A New Label must be worth 3 to 5 dollars! I stopped in at O'Reilly's this afternoon and their label brand synthetic was nearly $28.

All the Castrol was over $30

I have always been a huge Magatec fan and like its packaging design. However, I'm very afraid that Castrol will go bankrupt with this freak of nature Edge packaging. Yikes. Disco anyone?

That is a snazzy new label. I do like it myself.



I have basically decided to go with Valvoline white bottle, Valvoline Advanced full synthetic or Federated Auto full synthetic 5w30. I can get the Federated Auto full synthetic oil for good everyday prices. And I will get the Valvoline from Wally World at times or from AAP or AZ specials.

Kind of weird that it says "use 0W20 on GM vehicles that recommend 5W20"

I wonder why they don't recommend their own 5w20 "on GM vehicles that recommend 5w20"???

I liked the old label better.

General Motors calls for AC Delco 0w-20 for GM vehicles that recommend 5w-20, so this really isn't a surprise.

Great picture! Thanks. Just bought 6 qts Magnatec at Walmart today for the wifeís EB Expedition and didnít see that. I wonder if the 5w30 will get that too.

I would rather have a plain label and a nice rebate like Mobil 1 or Pennzoil.

Probably because the 5W20 is not Dexos while the 0W20 is.

Meh. Never been impressed with a Castrol products except for their A3/B4 offerings. They are priced above their competition for no perceivable benefit.

Why would that be? Everyone else has dexos approved 5w20. Besides, dexos is not capitalized.

Sitting on a big stock of d1g1 that can be cleared on non-GM users before they introduce the d1g2 version?

Checking the bottle for the exact dexos spec would give the definitive answer.
