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

I think that from here on out, I will go with Mobil Super Synthetic. It's cheaper, Dexos Certified and offers a nice guarantee (see above). Since we cannot go past 5K miles per oci and it is guaranteed up 7500, I'm confident it will do the job just fine. As i said earlier though, you cannot go wrong with any of your selections either.

Now that you mention it, Mobil Super Synthetic isn't a bad idea, I may give it a shot in the future.

The only downside as I see it to MSS is that it's pretty much an auto parts store oil. So you need to watch for OCI specials to get it at reasonable pricing.

If it sat on the shelf at Wally's I'd suspect it would be extremely popular here, like QSUD is.

I wish the manual allowed for that grade , M1 0W-40 is an excellent oil. I've seen many UOAs of turbo engines shearing 5W-30 to a 20 weight after just 4k miles.

In theory a 40 weight would last longer, as long as duel dilution isn't bad.

I agree with the 0w40 sentiment but am now of the opinion that it really doesnt matter what oil is used, dilution will occur with any of them. Based on this, I might also use a low saps blend like MSHM if MSS isnt available. At our low oci, we dont really the benefits of a syn, unless spanking great deals can be had. As long as my oil meets Hyundai requirements.

I pick up QSUD at Menards on sale with a MIR for $2.99 per quart. I run it in my 2007 5.4 F-150 Screw. It currently has 150,000 miles on it with no complaints.
