Castrol Classic operation caters for veteran, vintage classic cars, and motorcycles, older than 35 years basically all vehicles pre-1980. Castrol Classic made it very clear that Castrol’s manufacturing processes of the Classic Range have not changed and have remained true to the correct formulations and viscosities as originally recommended by all the classic marques.
The formulations required for modern vehicles are very different from those needed for older vehicles. Oils for modern engines comply with the latest API ratings of SN/CF and specific ACEA and OEM specifications dealing with fuel efficiency, extended drain intervals and aftermarket exhaust treatment systems and are specifically designed for the modern engine needs.
A classic car engine however, can have the opposite characteristics with cork/graphite/rope seals, low pressure gear driven oil pumps, larger oil galleries with greater dependence on "splash" and "cling" lubrication, lower revving with larger machine clearances. Such a widely different engine design can demand a different lubricant and the Castrol Classic Oils range offers formulations for older vehicles that have been specially blended for the work they have to do.
The range is selling well in the UK across the country as well as in Europe we have also had an outstanding response in South Africa and across our borders for the brand. According to the guys behind the Castrol Classic oils in the UK, there is a huge demand from your veteran, vintage and classic vehicle owners this also includes motor cycles from that same era.
