The paramotor pilots favorite Castrol TTS synthetic 2 stroke oil (green tub) got renamed to Castrol Power 1 tts (green tub again)
In a final bid to confuse the budding pilot, it has now been renamed yet again and now available in a gold tub.
CASTROL POWER 1 RACING 2T
Old and new, pictured side by side below. New being the gold one.
