BP LUBRICANTS AMERICAS LAUNCHES CASTROL® GTX ™ DIESEL TO MEET THE NEED OF SMALLER DIESEL ENGINES.
Castrol® GTX™ Diesel is Engineered for Optimum Performance in Car and Light Truck Diesel Engines.
Wayne, NJ - March 4, 2005- The revitalization of
diesel engines within the passenger car and light
truck markets means installers, retailers and
consumers will see their engine oil needs change. BP
Lubricants Americas, who continuously sets the
standard for high-performance lubricants, is launching
Castrol® GTX™ Diesel to meet this need.
Many car and light truck manufacturers are launching
diesel engines in the US and experts expect this
category to grow as lighter diesel engines are
available which are more environmentally conscious,
have improved fuel economy and increased
horsepower over the diesel engines of the past. As
consumers look to improve fuel economy, the
popularity of these engines will increase and their
engine oil needs will change.
To prepare installers for this opportunity, BP
Lubricants Americas has launched Castrol®
Diesel 15w-40 oil for superior lubrication for
passenger cars and light truck diesel engines. C
Castrol® GTX™ Diesel is engineered to
engine from piston deposits, oil thickening and valve
train wear, while minimizing the formation of engine
sludge through the use of anti-wear additives, anti-
oxidants and detergents.

Cummins, Navistar, Ford (WSS-M2C171D),
Volkswagon and Mercedes Benz 4-stroke diesel
