Does the current Castrol R still have actual "castor oil" in it?
Then maybe just buy a bottle at the pharmacy and pour a bit
in your crankcase every oil change for the same effect.
There may also be a medicinal value to the drivers behind you.

Too bad the Castrol oil they sell in this country is useless
except for James Bond's smokescreen/oil slick gadget.
Castrol USA should spend their $$ on a good base stock and
additives rather than those TV ads.
I use Kendall GT which seems best for air cooled engines.
What would be a good Moly additive for 12 quarts of 20W50 in a 911?
