I was looking around the Castrol Site and found something new (to me) in the MDS. Castrol Edge PIck-Up 5W-30 SP / GF6A 100C - 10.0 cSt HTHS - 3.04 NOACK - 10.1 Flash Point - 231C Interesting it's got essentially the same NOACK (10.1 vs 10.0) despite being thinner at 100C. Also the same HTHS as Edge. Flashpoint is higher compared to traditional Edge or Edge EP. Looks kind of interesting despite my usual aversion to "truck oil marketing".

I find it interesting that this oil is only sold by one regional vendor. Anyway, thanks for bringing this oil to our attention, Gene.

My 4.3 high output 99' S10 ran best with 5w30 Valvoline Maxlife Synblend and Shell 89-93 octane gas.

Especially with SP GF6A D1G2 MS6395 WSS-M2C961-A1. Doesn't appear to be worth it for one vendor. I haven't seen the new regular Edge or Edge EP SP GF6A MDS yet, maybe it's just a relabel.
