Is the Castrol most common oil in Europe?
Does it means it made different? Better?

They do have different standards so they will be different, Mobil 1 could not be classified as a full synthetic oil, but only as a synthetic technology oil.

Do you remember the lawsuit Castrol-Mobil?

That law is German law, hence only applies in Germany.

"Popular" is not a practical term wink2
In the age of A3/B4 I think that was M1 ESP 5W-30. For finale users. Was, because his availability ends.
Mobil1 is generally "strong" brand in the EU (good old time), but there are BIG problems with falsifications...

In bikes Motul are still unassailable.

Popular in (car)companys and industry (as, sold amount / year), I mean thats Fuchs and Total/Elf. Followed by Castrol and Aral (Aral, Castrol = BP) and Shell.

Castrols esteem in engine oils are in recent years... a bit... given way (after short Edge Titanium hype). But Castrols gear oils brands Syntrans and Syntrax (for first Syntrax) are furthemore very very strong.
In the EU you think about diif oil choice something like: "Ok what I can maybe take, if I not choose Syntrax?" Mostly a one chose Syntrax wink2 Its like Motul and bikes.

Top-end are few products from Rowe and a couple from Ravenol. In gear and in engine oils. Only technically, for example, Ravenols GL-4+ (GL-4/GL-5) oils are near without competition. Worldwide. But the penetration this brands are not so big (outside EU) like anothers.

even oils made in germany for export do not have to be real synthetic i believe. thanks to castrol for that mess allowing oils sold as synthetic but being group that clouds consumers from knowing what an oil is FOREVER$$$$

I cant say about all of Europe but in Germany it has to be Castrol by a wide margin followed by Shell.

There was never a lawsuit It was a complaint filed with a BBB type agency.

Not as much as you'd think, perhaps in Germany but not the rest of Europe
