It's a well known brand and love the Castrol liveried Hondas.

But I've never bought any of their oil.

But I did buy some of their brake fluid last week.

Semi-synth. It'd be a superior quality oil for your lawnmower or commuter scoot.

I used to use A747 in my race bike... and R30 in the gearbox.

I use Castrol because it’s got that very handy spout that was essential to fill my TDR (google it if you want to see a bad design) but the best smelling stuff (or at least used to be) is Motul 800 - it was amazing.

We all use Motorex. But useless filler spout.
So I bought a job lot of 1 litre tomato sauce bottles with perfect squeezy spout to fill the bottle on the bike.
Now we're all happy :obscene-birdiedoublered:

IIRC Motrex has a spout thing as well, or it used to, I used to use it for motocross because the KTM shop I used only sold that but IIRC it was a funny one where it tucked in awkwardly and would be prone to leaking once you'd opened it.

The Castrol spout was much better, especially for the TDR filler, AFAIK all Castrol has the spout because I use their R40 (Castrol-R) in my old bikes and that has it as well.

The spout on the Castro full synth is just the right size to take a 90ml syringe.
