Indeed, Castrol accounts for 23 out of every 100 gallons of consumer motor oil purchased in U.S. stores.
Internationally renowned for its pioneering technologies, Castrol directly serves around 500,000 customers across the globe, and more than 200 million people use its products. Many of those products — such as the Nexcel oil cell and Castrol EDGE — can boost engine efficiency and help drivers reduce their carbon intensity.2
Launched in 2015, Nexcel is a revolutionary technology that represents one of the most significant oil change innovations in automotive history. An easy-to-change unit containing both engine oil and filter, the Nexcel oil cell is designed to reduce tailpipe carbon dioxide emissions, improve vehicle servicing and increase the recycling of used oil.
In 2017, Castrol introduced a new “bio” variant of its EDGE motor oil, called EDGE Bio-Synthetic. Made with 25 percent plant-based oil, it offers a more renewable alternative without compromising the Castrol EDGE performance that customers have come to expect.
Like numerous other Castrol products, EDGE Bio-Synthetic is carbon neutral, thanks to the combination of its advanced technology and BP’s carbon offset program. BP creates the offsets by investing in activities that reduce greenhouse gas emissions or absorb CO2.
Castrol has facilities across the United States, from Port Allen, Louisiana — where it blends, packs and distributes lubricants — to Wayne, New Jersey, which is home to its Western Hemisphere headquarters.
BP is committed to providing consumers with high-quality fuels. In 2008, we introduced BP gasoline with Invigorate® exclusively at US BP gas stations. Building off of the success of this product and recognizing the fact that engine technology in the US was evolving, in April 2016 BP introduced a reformulated BP gasoline with Invigorate®—our best fuel ever.
All three grades of BP gasoline with Invigorate® have a unique formula that, with continuous use, helps clean and prevent deposits that can form on critical engine parts from use of minimum detergency gasoline. Results can include cleaner engines that help restore fuel economy and give smoother acceleration with less hesitation.*
BP stands by the quality of our product and maintains quality control programs to ensure that the fuel integrity remains intact throughout the supply chain. The BP Fuel Guarantee is our promise to consumers that in the rare case BP fuel causes vehicle damage, all fuel-related repairs will be covered by BP.**
BP Diesel® is an ultra low sulfur diesel fuel (ULSD) containing lubricity-improving additives that help protect diesel engines. It’s a workhorse fuel you can always depend on—helping your diesel engine unleash its potential by enabling both its power and performance. ***
