Castrol in the U.S. ???

I enquired about Motorcraft oil, the Ford Sage Marc convinced me with his good experience as a "Techie"... It is not available here!! You guys don't run Castrol much in the U.S.???? Ford does not even use the Motorcraft oil here, recommending Castrol RX Super.... Probably a little too much freight... What goes with Castrol in the good ole U.S. of A???? How is it considered?

And Transmax Z full synthetic transmissions fluid, stands higher temperatures etc... What do you hear in America? Or is Castrol just not common at all there....

Best Regards from Australia...

I have noticed Castrol in several parts stores here, Advance Auto, Autozone, just to name a few. It's in the local Wal-Mart too.

You can find loads of comments & opinions on Castrol at

I know their US oils are different for what is sold in other countries. Many "pureists" dislike Castrol because they feel that the company is mislabling its synthetic as a true synthetic when it is actually made from regular oil base stock.
