Well I just used my last jug of PU over the weekend and plan on switching to QSUD but I've been thinking about Castrol Edge.

What's the general consensus on Edge? I've seen some good UOAs but some mixed opinions on it's performance as well.

-Thanks

I'm looking at a banner just above your post that says it's liquid engineering. IDK, YMMV.

I would opt for the QSUD which I have been pleased with.

Flip a coin. They're both good oils. I run QSUD a lot since it's on sale.

Yup, this. There's no compelling reason to run one over the other. Run whichever you get cheapest.

Thanks everyone, I guess the difference between the 2 is negligible.

Since QSUD is around 21.50 it's a good deal.

I just bought a 5 L jug of Castrol Edge for $25 cdn
for my next oil change on our Saturn Vue. I'm using the
5w40 grade in my BMW. No problem with Castrol.

If everything was equal I'd pick the Edge over SOPUS's entry level syn, price adds a little more to the mix though. You won't go "wrong" with either one of course.

Hyundai's always seem to run well on QSUD. I plan on using QSUD on my next OCI for my wifes Hyundai SF...

either or.

I have run both, no ill effects with either but yes the QSUD seems to be the better deal.

Well, from the seat of my placebo, EDGE feels better in my car. Seriously, both are fine oils.

So Castrol gives your car the extra Edge or margin of error it needs and Quaker State gives your engine Ultimate Durability for the long-term. wink laugh

When you mix them you get:

Castrol State - Ultimate Edge wink
