I just "Googled" Castrol Magnatec:

Go to F.A.Q's

No rep required for a simple Google. :)

Not sure, but I have a diesel car and have found that there are two types of oil, one designed for deisel. To be on the safe side I'd get the correct type.

Good spot by thesaint. The advice leaves you in no man's land though. It says you can use it, but should use a dedicated diesel oil. I'd stll go for diesel oil myself as the engine has not the same friction as a petrol car.

Wouldn't recommend it as diesel oil has extra additives to keep the engine clean etc so petrol oil won't work as well.

Owened a diesel car for three years, and if I were you would be using the diesel oil as that will keep your engine sharp
