Question Oil/Fuel sponsors?

When you see the "Shell-Helix Holden", it's just money to the team as fuel is regulated... but what about oil? If one team is sponsored by Castrol, and the other by Mobil1... are they using those? Or is oil regulated too?

Oil doesn't give a significant competitive advantage, so I've never heard of it being regulated the way fuel is. Most cars run a racing-specific straight-weight synthetic (with no detergents) of the brand of their choice.

I'd assume that anyone taking a sponsorship from an oil company would use that brand, considering the negative press that would come out otherwise.

The only exception might be if an oil company sponsored an entire event or season with the stipulation that the cars could only run their brand, but I've never heard of it.

I know in Nascar whoever the car is sponsered by, thats the oil they use. Apparently they take the oil after each race and test it's condition and the wear on the engine.
