API doesn’t have anything to do with European approvals.Edge 0W40 was removed from the Canadian market. Edge 0W30 A3 is hard to find (e.g. if there's even a spot on the shelf for it, it's empty) and really pricey in my area ($19/L), and is why I switched to Edge 0W40 several years ago. The PDS for Edge 0W30 still seems to show API SL, so is it safe to presume this is the same "GC" which carried LL-01 for many years in the past until the LL test spec was revised in 2018?
Also, in N55 2018 revision is irrelevant. No 0W30/40 oil with HTHS above 3.5 can be now approved for LL01 or LL04.
I think you guys have Pennzoil or Motomaster 0W40 for good price? As long as it has MB229.5.
