Castrol EDGE has definitely helped my car’s fuel consumption to be more economical. Currently I am using Shell Ron-95 petrol. I have done a test to compare if Castrol EDGE has any impact on Fuel Economy. Well, below are my results:
Before using Castrol EDGE:
I started with a full tank. After I have clocked 365.5km, I refill to full tank and it cost me RM 75.15 (39.55 ltr). That means my car’s fuel consumption was RM 0.2056/km (9.216 km/ltr).
After using Castrol EDGE Test 1: On City Drive
On city drive, I clocked 360.3km when I refill to full tank at the same pump of the same station. It cost me RM 71.19 (37.47 ltr). That means my car’s fuel consumption was RM 0.1976/km (9.615 km/ltr).
After using Castrol EDGE Test 2: On Mix Drive
This test was done during Chinese New Year to Karak via Karak highway. Driving within the Karak town and then return to Klang Valley. The drive involved up-hill driving, slow traffic on highway during Chinese New Year balik kampong, low speed small town driving and also clear highway driving on return trip. To my surprised, I clocked 405.7km when I refill to full tank at the same pump of the same station. It cost me only RM 67.74 (35.65 ltr). That means my car’s fuel consumption was RM 0.1670/km (11.380 km/ltr).
I am truly amazed with Castrol EDGE 5W40. It’s improvement impact on my car’s performance is simply spectacular. Not only will the fuel savings alone more than cover for the cost of the lubricant, but I believe the increased in power means less stress to my car, resulting my car to be more reliable and higher longevity. But of course, the ultimate benefit is that my car is now more responsive and powerful, means it is now safer to overtake when necessary not to mention it is now more fun to drive. I truly thank Castrol for introducing such an amazing product. If I have benefited, I am sure all will benefit too.
