Has anyone heard of or tried GP50 engine oil? I think it's a Castrol or Valvoline brand?

It's Castrol, is that stuff still around?
I used it in my Clevo in the early 90's... i don't think i've seen it in shops since then.

I've never seen it either but my mechanic still buys it in drums and recommends it? Might just stick to the shell/penzoil/penrite synthetic oils.

Castrol Edge is the new replacement range from Castrol Formula R, which was the replacement many years ago now for some of the Castrol performance oils like GP50.
