Inside Line: Castrol

by

The second-generation MINI was launched in 2006 with a range of 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engine sizes. Castrol points out that every engine in the current MINI range – and every other MINI currently on sale, including the Coupe, Convertible and Countryman – was designed to run on fully-synthetic, low viscosity Castrol EDGE 0W-30 engine oil, the only lubricant actively recommended by MINI for use in its engines.

It’s important that vehicle technicians top-up these vehicles with the correct oil formulation. Any lubricant lacking the relevant BMW Longlife-04 specification may reduce the efficiency, performance and longevity of the engine.

The maximum oil change interval for the current MINI is 24 months for all models in the range, although oil change intervals may vary according to driving conditions. Workshops should consider offering customers a one-litre bottle of the MINI-recommended Castrol EDGE 0W-30 oil, in case the motorist needs to top-up their car’s oil between infrequent workshop visits. This can also help customer satisfaction and retention, as the workshop can demonstrate that they have an owner’s best interests at heart.

Castrol EDGE 0W-30 is the only oil recommended by MINI as it offers the best blend of efficiency, performance and engine protection for its engines.
