I believe it is still in production and being imported. I'm half joking and poking fun at myself about stashing Gold. But there may be a bit truth in the need to stash Gold in that it is plausible that Castrol could shift production to the US as they have with the BC (Belgian Castrol) 5w-40. An unfavorable US to EURO exchange rate would tend to cause funny things to happen.
Stash Update - Only 4 1/2 quarts green left and 39 quarts of gold. Gold is still hard to find in rural Illinois. Anyone else want to share their stash status and recent GC finds? Is anyone else having a hard time finding even gold GC?
Got an email from Castrol to win an automotive scholarship...as part of the Grand Prize they were giving away: "Stock Up on SYNTEC: Unlock your engine's power with a year's supply of Castrol SYNTEC."
If that is all they are going to give maybe I should turn the tables and give Castrol a prize of a five year supply of GC.
