If you had to chose between these two,which would you choose and why? Which one looks better on paper?

I’ve run the castrol you mentioned in a Honda 1.5t, performed well I’m sure the valvoline will be great too, but since i can recommend castrol from experience I’ll say that one. I’d run the valvoline within hesitation though. If you keep changing at 5-7k intervals either oil will keep your engine running like new for a long time especially the Honda in your sig, I got that same engine to 250k and it still ran like new when I sold it, no major work besides clutch And brakes and general maintenance.

I’ve got Magnatec in it now,got about 150 miles or so till oil change time (olm is at 5%). So far it’s been the best running of the bunch (Magnatec,QSUD,PPHM). I’m guessing Edge should have “the edge” over Magnatec:D Haha couldn’t resist;)

As much as I like Edge 0W-40, I say "Buy American" right about now.

Valvoline Advanced or EP, NAPA (Valvoline), and Kirkland oil products for me.
