hi all,
Does anybody know if the Australian castrol edge titanium 5w30 is the same product as the USA's version?
I presume that the australian one is is manufactured locally and therefore suspect quality and specs maybe different.
Thanks, drew

Welcome!

It's not the same, it's also not the same as what is sold in Europe. I would not be so cynical, its a good lube without the "environmental" whoohaa attached. It will say on the can where it is manufactured.

Thanks for your reply. I've been using the castrol edge titanium 5w30 in both my toyota 4.7L V8 landcruiser and toyota1.3L echo. Both vehicle books recommend 10w30, with 5w30 for cooler weather. I hope that the castrol edge titanium 5w30 will be ok for the australian summer, especially some of the hot 40C+ locations I travel to.

I just had the German 0w30 put in and it seems to have a bit more torque than the G tech syn 5w30 I had in there, motor sounds the same. Wix filter/0w30 german syn Castrol.

Castrol Edge changed again? I went to Walmart and picked up the newest version of the 0W-40wt It was Made in Germany Edge with Titanium. Walmart had just finished putting up the new display. I went to three other Walmarts this weekend to pick up some 0w-40 and they were all out, I began to think this was just a temporary supply glitch. I guess they phased out the last version. You no longer have the choice between the regular and Titanium. The best part the price went down! I paid $21.00 and change for the 5qt Jug.

Yes, the black bottle Edge now has Titanium in it. There have been a few threads on this in various forums.
