I'm waiting to see when they come out with a 5w-20. I'll try it for sure then. It may be expensive, but if it's a true PAO base and has a great add pack it could be right in line with other high quality synthetics like Redline.

I have used it in my Corolla since new, 3 years and 40000 miles grade 5W-30. Engine runs as new and is very clean as far as I can see and has not used a drop between oci. I do change at 3000 miles as the oil is half the price of Mobil 1 and is frequently on offer. Roger

I couldn't avoid buying 5 quarts of Syntec 5W-30 for my Honda today. It was 25 bucks with a Purolator Pureone filter. Also Purolator has a rebate on the filter. So it made it 23 bucks for everything.....Was going to try Edge but this deal was too good.

Better oils to be had for the money if buying it at their regular price. For the price you got it at, it's a good deal.
lol. Thanks for making me feel good about my purchase. :D I've never been much of a deal seeker until recently when I realized I could be saving all this money and do oil changes on 4 cars for the reg. cost of 2 cars. :) Keeps my car hobby alive and kicking.

I just picked up 7qts of this stuff from AZ at the $4.99 price. If it wasn't on sale I would have never touched the stuff but since it was on sale I am curious to see how it will run in my GTO compared to M1. If Castrol would have sold this stuff as "Castrol Syntec Edge" or "Castrol Syntec Advanced" and marketed it for it's 15,000 mile OCI and for the new Mfr specs it meets and sold it for the same price point as M1 EP I might have taken this product more serious. Heck, I might of even been ok with them saying it has "X times better wear than their standard Syntec". At least this may have convinced some regualar Syntec user's to switch but charging a SUPER premium price for this oil and telling me to "Think with my Dipstick" just isn't going to cut it. Just my $0.02

Yep. Did you ask the sales clerk to put it in a plain brown bag?
