Eric is right, I looked at the bottom of every
1qt and 5qt Castro GSX jugs I have and they all
have varnish at the bottom. It's too bad I
have so much left. I'll be using it on my
Celica from now on.

FWIW Castrol does not even refine base stocks let alone finished automotive grade oils.

The conventional oil is purchased overstock etc. from othere refiners and then combined to create a blend for sale.

You can actually find ash deposits i the bottom of their 1 gallon jugs etc.PLease use a real oil OK?

THe SYNTECH is crap too. Again not made by Castrol just a mix of leftovers.

AMSOIL or REdline are the best synthetics avalable. Mobil 1 is a second tier oil but suitable for a street engine but questionable for hard race applications unless you drain frequently.
