German castrol is limited to Auto Zone and some Pep Boys, and some Auto Zones are discontinueing it. The reason it became popular was it is Castrols only PAO oil. It was sold here to meet some European Car specs for oil.
That PAO fact further proves that European oil is superior......the link I pasted proves that and shows that politics is the reason. The car makers in Europe have power to mandate the best motor oil instead of "just good enough" like in the U.S.
The American Petroleum Institute (API) sets minimum for performance standards for lubricants. Motor oil is used for the lubrication, cooling,
Yeah, what ever
