WAYNE, N.J. -- June 16, 2014

Castrol announced today that Hypuron Advanced Formula, its semi-synthetic
10W-30 diesel engine oil, has received the latest category approval, SN, for
gasoline engines from the American Petroleum Institute (API). The SN category,
introduced in October 2010, was established to provide better protection
against high-temperature deposits, more stringent sludge control, and seal

“A growing number of fleets with both diesel and gasoline engines require a
single oil that does a great job of protecting engines in a range of
scenarios,” said Kim Levine, U.S. Marketing Manager for Castrol Global
Business. “And that’s something we know a lot about at Castrol. We listened to
our customers’ needs and responded with a solution to meet those needs.”

“Since its introduction in 2011, Hypuron Advanced Formula 10W-30 has helped
heavy duty commercial fleets to significantly reduce costs because it is
designed for ‘extreme’ extended drain intervals (up to 70,000 miles*) in Class
8 diesel engine applications,” stated Levine. “While extreme extended drain
intervals are not applicable for gasoline and light-duty diesel engine
applications, Hypuron Advanced Formula 10W-30 offers proven protection and
improved operational efficiency for mixed fleets.”

Castrol delivers excellent value to its customers through premium lubrication
solutions that provide highly effective equipment protection and proven
extended drain capabilities. Castrol’s teams of lubrication experts partner
with on-road and off-road fleets to deliver proven operational efficiencies
through innovation and extensive testing and field trials.
