While we're on the subject, anybody else notice how some jugs of Edge have had pink caps? Was that for breast cancer awareness or...? There's no other pink markings on the label or anything, it' s just the caps so it seems awfully random.

It was for breast cancer. There was a big thing on their website a while back.

As if we're not already aware, they feel the need to put pink caps on the oil containers?!

Hey as long as the foil seal is intact i wouldn't worry about the cap. If its not sealed then idk.

They had a deal going with susan komen with something about the lids I thought. Its all about fund raising and getting a good image. I'm fine with it, as long as the money actually goes to cancer research.

I did an oil change with Castrol 0w40 a few months ago. No bottle had a loose cap on it.

And all the bottles had the factory metallic seal in place.
