Castrol Introduces Low Viscosity Oil for Volkswagen Engines

Noria news wires

Castrol recently unveiled a new low viscosity engine oil for Volkswagen (VW) engines. Developed in co-operation with Volkswagen, the Edge Professional LL IV FE 0W-20 oil is intended for use in engines requiring the VW 508 00/509 00 specification to help maximize performance.

The new oil has been formulated to exceed VW's fuel economy specification, delivering more fuel economy while maintaining the performance expected of long-life oils.

The Edge Professional LL IV FE 0W-20 is already supplied as the first-fill oil for specific engines of Volkswagen vehicles, allowing them to deliver 10,000 miles or one year of driving before an oil change is needed.

"After over a decade of close collaboration with Volkswagen Group, Castrol has raised the bar in delivering the first long-life 0W-20 oil for the group," said Oliver Rose, vice president of strategic cooperation at BP. "Engine oils that deliver greater fuel economy without compromising on performance are essential today, and we're delighted to announce the first low viscosity oil for Volkswagen Group engines."

The Edge Professional LL IV FE 0W-20 engine oil will be available in Volkswagen franchised workshops and dealerships beginning in January 2017.
