With launch of GTX 5W-30 RN17

With engine technology in the Australian carparc advancing rapidly, the need for lubricant suppliers to maintain pace of their own product development has never been more pronounced.
With Renault looking for lubricants that can deliver improved oxidation performance, piston cleanliness and sooted valvetrain wear performance in their latest technology engines, Castrol has recently launched Castrol GTX 5W-30 RN17.
A full synthetic engine oil, Castrol GTX 5W-30 RN17 carries Renault RN17 approval, Renault’s latest 5W-30 mid SAPS service fill specification for petrol and EURO 6 diesel vehicles.
This makes it suitable for use in a range of Groupe Renault (Renault, Mitsubishi, Nissan) vehicles including late model Mitsubishi Express vans.
The specification has also been designed for turbocharged gasoline direct (TGDI) engines and includes gasoline particulate filter (GPF) protection.
Importantly for workshops looking to consolidate lubricants, the Renault RN17 specification is fully backwards compatible in applications where RN700 and RN710 approvals are called for.
As one of the world’s most trusted engine oils Castrol GTX is designed to specifically help extend engine life and like all Castrol GTX products, the Double Action formula of Castrol GTX 5W-30 RN17 is designed to clean away old sludge and is demonstrated to protect against new sludge formation better than tough industry standards (API SN Seq. VG Sludge test limit).
