Elixion from Castrol Heavy Duty Lubricants is a low-viscosity SAE 5W-30 engine oil formulated to meet the CJ-4 specification and provide improved fuel economy. The thinner oil focuses on reducing “parasitic loss,” or friction within the engine, and also contains a robust additive package formulated to allow for extended drain intervals.

Elixion also offers cold temperature wear protection due to its faster flow properties at low temperatures, as well as added protection against intense heat from newer diesel engines.
