    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi guys, I have run my 1.4MA on Castrol Egde for the last two oil changes since I bought it. I do the oil-change every 10000 km (6000 miles) at an independent garage and bring my own oil there. Selenia is not very easy to find here in Sweden. So far I've been using Castrol Edge 5w40 that I have...

  4. Castrol R ENGINE OIL

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Is there anyone here who has run their Spider 2.0 on castrol R engine oil ? Mineral oil is mineral oil and they use it for old racing engines so apart from the cost of it are there any drawbacks? Will it require much more regular changes? The smell of it is alone is worth the extra cost.

  8. Views re diesel Castrol Edge oil

    Alfa Giulietta
    Castrol edge 5w-30 ACEA C3 vs normal selenia 5w-30 ACEA C2 Spec in the manual is C2 so in theory the castrol should be better. What do you guys think? C3 might mean some 2% increase in consumption but i'm more interested in engine life than negligible fuel efficiency improvements.
  9. Castrol Edge - 5w40 for Multiair

    Alfa Giulietta
    Has anyone used this oil in their multiair? It meets ACEA C3 and Fiat 9.55535-S2 which I believe is what the 2010 version of the Multiar needs. I have tried to read the "What oil" threads but they seem to go round in circles so many times my head hurts :confused: Not so sure about using...

  12. Castrol R as a fuel additive?

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi guys, now I know this will sound a bit odd to those who do not know the beautiful smell of Castrol R but bare with me. Castrol R was the racing engine oil of choice during the 60s, 70s and into the 80s. Anybody who went to bike races or hot rods will know exactly what I am talking about. I...

  14. Is Selenia much better than Castrol Magnatec?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, Car is due for service and can get a good deal but the garage uses Alfa spec Castrol Magnatec. Is the Selenia oil, 5w30 WR in my case, worth paying a little extra for?
