Castrol will be BMW engine oil supplier for the next 5 years. BP, one of the world’s leading suppliers of high-performance lubricants, and the manufacturer of the Castrol oil brands have been selected as the engine oil partner for BMW and MINI authorized dealers across the US, Canada, and Mexico.

Therefore, Castrol is BMW US genuine oil. This new five-year agreement confirms a long-standing partnership between the two premium brands, as Castrol had been the engine oil supplier over a 14-year span.
As part of the recent agreement, BP will continue to produce BMW Group’s branded engine oils which meet the OEM’s most recent and rigorous engine specifications, including LL-17 FE+ and LL-12 FE, as well as older generation specifications such as LL-01 and LL-04.
The BMW branded lubricant formulations are based on Castrol EDGE, a top full synthetic brand strengthened by Fluid Titanium Technology which increases film strength, reduces friction, and improves lubrication under the intense pressure of high output engines.
“We are honored to have been selected by the BMW Group to resume our position as their lubricant supplier. The BMW brand is both iconic and globally recognized as a symbol of performance engineering, which is well-aligned with BP’s market position. We look forward to future collaboration in lubricant development as well as the pursuit of new sustainability initiatives,” said Laura Posadas, Regional President, Castrol Americas.
