Why Use Castrol Lubricants?

Castrol considers themselves as the ‘home of liquid engineering,’ and with good reason. Castrol has been developing lubricants since the early 1900s, pioneering new ideas and helping the aviation industry take flight. Castrol continues to innovate and lead, having launched their own range of marine oils, providing lubricants for the Mars Space Rover and now creating an engine oil with 25% renewable plant-based oil.  

Castrol products focus on the changing demands of the industries they serve. Their most recent ventures are transmission oils for electric cars, and metalworking fluids that will help industries use less water. This is why, when considering which lubricant products to use for your business, Castrol can be relied upon to consistently bring quality, innovation and advanced technology to every area of your business, machinery and equipment. Castrol has a long heritage of partnership and collaboration; as the UK’s largest distributor of Castrol lubricant products, Certas Energy Lubricants are proud to align our values with theirs.

Operating throughout Britain and Europe, Grayline Coaches has provided professional coach hire for over 50 years. With its fleet of 19 vehicles on the road for an of average 6 days a week, covering an average annual distance of 24,188km per vehicle, the coach company needs to be confident that its vehicles and engines are in top condition and operating as efficiently as possible.

Grayline Coaches had previously been using mineral-based oils for their engines and basic mineral-based gear and axle oils. The Race Group, part of Certas Energy recommended the use of Castrol’s Vecton 10w/40oil for the fleet’s engines and fully synthetic Castrol Syntrax Longlife 75w/90 on the axles. By converting their engine, gearbox and rear axle lubricants to fully synthetic, high performance Castrol products, Grayline Coaches was able to save 6 litres of fuel per day per vehicle which added up to a total saving of £38,000 off their annual fuel bill a year.

“Vehicles had to be filled up with fuel less frequently, with noticeable improvements in driving performance – gear changes were much smoother.”
