A friend showed me this bottle which he bought for his upcoming service but the packaging is not like Castrol's other products. Someone suggested it may be a Tection series oil but the Tection oils I could search doesn't look like this either.
Was my friend cheated or something?

Same dude from Lowyat? Hehehe.. That Tection fella was me. But I'm quite sure I'm wrong. Everyone here seems to think it's the old packaging.

If it's so old that no one has seen it before, it's possible your friend got cheated. But need to see the manufacturing date stamp on the bottle.

Small world :rofl:

But well probably the only thing my friend can do is not go back there again. He bought it while he was in his hometown but already came back to KL

I found this overseas packing, this oil rated SH
When the big GTX words get replaced with something like EXTRA, you cant help but suspect its counterfeit....

There was one oil with the word "Extra" but cannot remember whether it was Castrol or not. However there was another packing before the current one which was rated SL if not mistaken....:driver:
