Hello:

This is an update of a thread I posted earlier. Because of unexpected kv100 results, Blackstone retested. I also requested they do a kv40 test so we could determine the viscosity index.

Original thread was as follows. Disregard if it still exists.

http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/3516233/Castrol_Edge_Syntec_0W-20,_0W-#Post3516233

Updated results are as follows:

0W-30 Belgium


0W-40 German

So basically the additive packages are the same,just the viscosity changes.
Interesting.
I wonder if the 0w-20 is the same thing b

Thanks for the data. Good info to know if choosing this brand of oil.

Clevy:

I put the 0w-20 in its own thread. I grouped the 0W-30 and 0W-40 because they are A3/B4, BMW LL-01, MB 229.5 oils. Notice the 0W-40 has titanium. The 0W-30 does not.

I'll take the 0W30 thanks, lower VI, and higher flashpoint do it for me.

(Why I chose edge 5W30 A3/B4 in the most recent sales in Oz rather than the 5W40).

Thanks for posting these (my PM still stands).

What you may see is a small difference as in March 2014 updated formulations were launched with Titanium. (Production is later though)

Yeah, here in the U.S., I'll go with 0W-40. It's only $21.66 at WMart and they don't sell the 0W-30, that costs $39 elsewhere.

Interesting the 0w40 has the Ti but they don't appear to mention it on the bottle, at least that I noticed. They are pretty proud of the Ti in their other offerings.

Interesting observation based on the numbers above. I graphed the oils here, and the 0w-40 becomes thinner than the 0w-30 @ -5c or 23f, though there's not a significant difference until you get below -25c or -13f, where the 40w is much thinner.

As far as I know there are three formulations: 12.8, 13.1 and 13.5.
