So I'm about to start a Auto Rx treatment and after that I was thinking about running Edge and using a eao filter for 15k miles and doing a uoa every 5k miles. The car in question is a 1994 Chevrolet Cavalier with a 3.1 v6 and has 199,621 miles on it and it doesn't burn that much oil, about a quart every 8k miles. What does everybody think?

Why the UOA? You can change the oil and filter for the price of a complete UOA.
Why a uoa? I want to see how it holds up under 15k miles of hard driving

I just joined this board and Im not claiming to know a lot about oil. But, I have this in my car right now. Have 800 miles on the oil. I say, from the VOA on this oil, it looks on par to an Amsoil oil. So why not

I think he's getting at spending $30 every 5K to see if the oil is still good vs. just changing it out for new oil.

From what others have said, Edge sold outside the US is different than that sold inside the US. Same for Syntec.

Yes you're right. If you have a sound and clean engine why do all those UOAs. A good synt. goes 10,000 miles at least.

1. Why waste the Edge and all those UOA's on a 1994 Cavalier? 2. If you want to do it just run the whole 15,000 and then do a UOA. it claims 18,000 miles. **I am going to run my Edge in my Camry 10,000 miles and then do a UOA.
