Was looking at these figures for Castrol gold bottle 0w40 from the russian oil sites. Great NOACKs.

Curious if this is exactly the same stuff in our black bottle edge 0w40?

I know to not get too excited about pour points, but -60C is pretty impressive.

EDGE 0W-40 is pretty much the gold standard right now as far as engine oils go. PAO basestock, impressive specs, a healthy additive pack, and all for less than $5 a quart. I've had good success with it.

Castrol 0W40 right now is the best you can get for Euro application (gasoline engines).
It is same stuff.

Yes, here you have to watch. It doesn't make sense in North America to put it a tier above the normal synthetic (same goes with M1 0w-40), or you may have retailers not carry it, or ask a premium. The only Euro gold bottle we get here is the 5w-30 A3/B4, and that's only 1 L bottles, so you pay a premium anyhow. wink

Been rethinking about using this because of the high Ca content. My engines are DFI. Other people's UOA show about 2,500 Ca in some reports.

I agree, FWIW, although I think the gold bottle was much prettier grin .

The spec sheet shows Ca starting at 2026. Compared to some oils not that high.

If gold bottle referred is FST Castrol, it's definitely better than black edge which has short life time.


Life is change.
