This is the Asian version of Castrol SLX. Smells lightly hydrocarbon & very lightly fragrant (e.g. soap), but nothing like gummi bears. This is the part I like the best "It's unique SYNTHETIQ INTELLIGENCE enables the oil to adjust intelligently to all kinds of driving conditions..." [Duh!]

Nope. I poured GC in a jar just like that when I got my first bottle, and that's exactly what it looks like. And the specs on the back of this SLX bottle are exactly the ones on the back of the German Syntec 0w30. And while everyone's sense of smell is differt, this is obviously the same oil, folks, no matter where it's made.

That's actually pretty good compared to the English slogans in Japan. It doesn't have to make sense...it just has to sound cool. [Big Grin] Toyota's debut message in Japan for the 2004 Lexus LS430 (Toyota Celsior): "It lives in extreme luxury. The moment of having a new appreciation personally if it carries out by being chosen. It is not accidental and the moment visits to owner certainly. When "EXECUTIVE LINE" is able to be accepted into, owner notices himself of a one rank upper class." [ November 19, 2003, 06:30 PM: Message edited by: kreativ ]

Hi Ken4, Nice to see you here [Smile] This might be off topic from Castrol SLX. This forum if I'm not mistaken is predominantly American. The oil marketed in the US have different names from where you and I come from (Singapore). My experience on searching for Delvac 1300 Super locally was futile until a Czech website revealed that Delvac 1300 Super is also known as Delvac MX and Delvac MX is available locally. If I'm not wrong, Australia and NZ also markets Delvac 1300 Super as Delvac MX. Hopefully in this forum we can get some schizo names up for the different oils if there are any.

Genie, you've got to be careful with international oil translations even if they are the same name. Down here, Delvac 1330 is NOT the same as the U.S. delvac 1330. Ours has less ash, and a much lower viscoscity index.

" We have some kind of problem here, because I poured the GC I got in a beaker and it looked plain brown/transparent. The only green cast I could see was in the cap when it was against a white background and in a thin layer. Maybe they are varying the dye in the GC. Previously thought it was some kind of spectrum that brought it out.

Yes. You get the full "green effect" when it's front lit, which would be the case viewing it in the cap.
