The best for over 80 years

Caltex branded lubricants have been manufactured and distributed around the globe for over 80 years. Throughout this time, our focus has always been on providing superior products, and giving our customers peace of mind that they’re topping up their engines with quality.


Finding the right engine oil

Take the guesswork out of choosing the right oil. The Caltex New Zealand Lubricant Product Recommendation Guide helps you select the appropriate lubricant product for a wide range of vehicles, boats, machinery and equipment.


Oil analysis programme

We know that when it comes to lubricants, product performance is really important. So we’re proud to offer a sophisticated oil analysis programme to help determine the condition of our lubricants while they’re working.

The programme involves a series of physical and chemical tests of lubricants in service. Your results can then be used to confirm the suitability of the product, as well as determine the optimum time periods for preventative maintenance activities. And to catch any problems in the early stages – before equipment grinds to a halt.


Caltex oil network

Caltex lubricants are market leaders in engine oils, and with distributors around the country they are easily accessible too. Our distributors are locally owned and operated, providing quality service at a competitive price.
