Why Magnatec Stop-Start?

When driving in stop-start conditions, the engine speeds varies a lot, as you brake, stop, idle and start again, causing microscopic wear to the critical parts of the engine.

Also when idling, loads on critical engine parts can be up to 60% higher than at highway speeds, causing more damage.

Partnering with TomTom we found that the average driver can stop-and-start as many as 18,000 times a year which increases the wear on critical engine parts.

Castrol MAGNATEC’s Intelligent Molecules:
• Cling to engine parts when the oil drains down
• Form a self-healing layer to protect at each of the critical stages of stop-start driving and beyond
• Are proven to reduce wear in stop-start operation
• Deliver superior performance under extreme cold start up conditions
