Best on the market
Brought this oil from Supercheap Auto on a few ocassions now because it has been the best we have ever used in our 2010 Ford Territory.
The car actually does run better and so much smoother from the first drive. Is definately worth the money and if you buy through Supercheap Auto and are a member and it goes on sale then you get some money back.
I was surprised
Used this oil in a Holden V6 Alloytec that had previously run only 10-40 full synthetic oil. As most of them do it had a nasty rattle from the timing chain on start up, within a fortnight of changing to the Magnatec the start up rattle had completely gone
Zero improvement in fuel economy though
Best oil on the market, daily driven, and abused on the street!
Best semi synthetic oil out there. I use this in both Nissans. The 2008 350z with currently 79k miles, and 2012 nissan with approximately 16k miles. 350z has been thru 4-5 oil changes thus far since I got it when it had 66,311 miles. No issues. Engine runs smooth and quietly. No leaks or worn seal as well maintained. Bought the car,and didn't know what oil was used before so I gave it a try with 5w30 and fram filter. Today, I changed the oil and upgraded to a k&n filter. No sludge was presented or drop in mpg as the other reviewers stated(whom ...probably dont take care of their car). Mpg actually increased along with a tune up. I am a mechanic and rebuild engines as well. Other oils like Pennzoil, vavoline, and other brands causes engine failure. Even original factory engines had problems with other oils. Castrol gtx megatec protects like no other oil. This 350z is daily driven long distances as well abused some on the street. Best oil on the market! Suggestion of trying it out
You don't always need a full synthetic oil
48 years old and used many different oils and had a number of vehicles. And my opinion is totally based on experiences. Never took any auto classes and all my experience is hands on and self taught. I never believd that oil would make a car idle smoothly.... Well I swear to you this oil does I couldn't believe it. I'm currently using it in a Toyota Tacoma and though it's true they biuld the engins to last it never burms oil gas mileage hasn't changed enough to complain. 380k and I've never seen the oil black dark maybe but that's do to i...ts cleaning. I don't trust these castrol bashers . I owned a Honda accord 178k (castrol). 77 Ford truck 304k (castrol). Toyota 4runner 468k (castrol) . v.w. passat 80k Mobil 1 could never pass emissions sludge. Saab 9.5 Pennzoil sludge engine locked up 102k....castrol always worked for me.... This is excellent oil.
Almost 1/2 million miles on the engine
I drive a 75 dodge van stop and go 200 miles a day 5 day's a week. Cold starts I could always hear the rockers tapping until the oil got up into the engine since I started using this oil that doesn't happen anymore it's quite all the time. Also I have had a leak thats been going on for about two years now about a quart a week I like the leak because I always have fresh oil and since I started using castrol Magnatec that leak has slowed to about a quart every two weeks. The proof is my van this [censor word removed] amazing.
