Having used Castrol often, i cant say I'm impressed with the EDGE EP, although I'm sure it would do fine.

Holy Castrol TBN, Batman! That being said QSUD has a quite nice look as well. But none of my vehicles require a 20wt at present.

Care to elaborate?
Starting viscosity at 100c of 7.16. Limit for xw20 is 6.9. Other xw20 are always above 8.

I'm with you on that.

Based on the latest MSDS, the EP has even more PAO than AFE, so it's possible the EP 0w20 NOACK is even a tad bit lower than AFE 0w20. EP has a slightly boosted detergent level.

Starfire for MPG! Castrol TBN for extended oil changes. Mobil and SOPUS continue to impress. I have no problem with the store brand and not so popular oils. But, what is the dexos1 noack requirement?
