Now rated for up to one year service or 20,000 miles (whichever comes first) . Any current users with good experiences to share ? I'm trying the 5W30 in my Sedona van but the jury is still out (half way thru the OCI) . WM had it on roll back so thought I would try it ... D1 G2 rated I believe .

*On 2nd thought , I'm not sure if my jug of 5W30 Edge EP had the D1 / Gen 2 rating ? ... Also , I believe the M1 EP is the only other comparable EP synthetic to Edge EP ?

*Upon further research - I do not see where Castrol Edge 5W30 EP is D1 / Gen 2 certified ? *Bought it at WM on roll back for $21 (normally at WM around $28) .

Yes, to some GDI / TGDI owners. It's the strictest cert out there for gas-onlys. I read a sort-of-disappointment in Chris' post. That's why I suggested taking it back.

I see. I may try it just to see how it comes out on a UOA. I currently have Castrol edge in it with the certifications, at the least it'll give details between the differences of the two.

What is a analysis going to tell you? It's s good oil. If it meets specs for your vehicle then run it.
