The ultimate in performance and protection for today’s engines.

Since 2011, automakers have been under growing pressure to boost fuel economy and reduce emissions, driven by government regulations, including stringent standards for Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE).

One way of doing this is by developing smaller displacement engines while utilizing power adders—typically turbochargers to maintain or improve upon performance of larger displacement six and eight-cylinder engines. Additionally, technologies such as Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI), where the fuel is injected directly into the cylinder, as well as tighter tolerances are all designed to further improve fuel economy. All this results in relatively small, fast spinning engines that generate significant amounts of heat. As a result, good lubrication and protection is more critical than ever to maximize both performance and engine life.

As fuel economy standards continue to tighten, and ever lower viscosity oils are required, lubricant manufacturers have responded with new and innovative products designed for the ultimate in protection, performance, longevity and efficiency.

Available through Wakefield Canada, Castrol EDGE with Fluid Titanium Technology, represents the ultimate in maximum engine performance, sludge and wear protection. Castrol EDGE has been specifically designed to withstand the stress and friction placed on modern, high output, small-displacement engines and provides 10 times more temperature performance than the current industry standard. Additionally, Castrol EDGE transforms its structure under pressure. This enables it to keep metal surfaces apart from each other to reduce friction, while maximizing engine performance. Castrol EDGE has also proven to deliver six times the wear protection required by the latest Sequence IVA test limits. It also has the strength to maintain this unsurpassed level of engine protection for an extended drain cycle of up to 16,000 km between oil changes. In 0W grades, Castrol EDGE also improves fuel economy and is recognized as a Carbon Neutral product in meeting a range of API and industry classifications.

Castrol EDGE Extended Performance, which offers the same high-performance qualities, 30% improved oil film strength and extended drain intervals (32,000 km between oil changes), plus the ultra-high performance Castrol EDGE Euro Car designed for modern super cars, are also available through Wakefield Canada, providing service centres and their customers with the ultimate in fully-synthetic engine protection and performance.
