Very interesting. Foolish move by Castrol. I guess they thought no-one would ever catch on to what they had done!

StevieC, All these years and I didn't know Castrol was British owned.

It may be British owned, but it's the US marketing department that comes up with this stuff.

I know this as I have British heritage in my family. My mom's parents are from Ireland & UK and I have a ton of relatives over there and here (formerly there) who have also worked for Castrol here in Canada. It's British owned, it's a reasonably great product, but like Johnny says, the marketing is the pits. It's too bad.

Both sides of my family {grandparents, and my mom was born there} came from Italy and I wouldn't buy a Ferrari.

Let's not throw the baby out with the bath water: No question that Castrol's advertising is terrible, but there's nothing wrong with GTX.

I agree that their advertising isn't the best, but I still believe GTX is one of the best dino oils out there, and will continue to use it.

Yeah, our old Neon loved GTX...more than any other kind. Burned through that fast than any other oil I've seen.... Still good stuff though!
