    Ok quick one, is castrol GTX magnatec semi or fully synthetic? Nothing on the site seems to say other than 'synthetic engineering'?

    If u cant fiind it on the UK website u could always try the US or Austrlian websites, sometimes they other counrtys websites have the different details to each other

    That's because sometimes different oils will be sold under the same product name in different countries.

    We had a case where we were doing durability work on a particular engine. As is normal the engine manufacturer would specify EXACTLY which type of oil we should be using during the test in order to give repeatable results. Even though theoretically the same type of oil was available in the UK we had to have barrels of the stuff sent over from Europe at great expense as the UK stuff was actually different.
