Mumbai: Global engine oil maker Castrol announced the launch of Magnatec Stop-Start engine oil today. The engine oil has been developed specifically to protect against damage caused by driving in stop-start conditions, Castrol said in a release.
Waiting at various junctions causes microscopic wear in engines, it said, adding that intelligent molecules in the engine oil cling to critical engine parts and form a “self-healing layer of protection”.
“India's traffic congestion in main urban areas is something that is experienced daily and stop-start driving is a feature of everyday commuting. This is the ideal lubricant to provide the right protection to car engines in these conditions,” Castrol India Technology Manager Milind Vaidya said in the release.
Critical engine components are protected at each stage of stop-start driving, the release said.
