Abstract: We study the formality of the mapping torus of an orientation-preserving diffeomorphism of a manifold. In particular, we give conditions under which a mapping torus has a non-zero Massey product. As an application we prove that there are non-formal compact co-symplectic manifolds of dimension $ m$ and with first Betti number $ b$ if and only if $ m=3$ and $ b \geq 2$, or $ m \geq 5$ and $ b \geq 1$. Explicit examples for each one of these cases are given.
