well its technically a synthetic blend. its loaded with esters which has a molecular polarity so it attracts to metal hence the start-up protection they claim. i think this is a good oil.

Why do you think this is "bullshit"??? I don't know dick about the chemical breakdown of oil I would just think that CASTROL knows wtf they are doing.

well because they say that even in cold *** temps having this oil makes it safe to drive ur car w/o warming it up, aside from other affects (no vtec) this still doesnt sound like it works enough to justify that. IMO is all. if i knew the chem. comp of oil i would be makin my own **** too. lol
