I have an opportunity to buy edge 5w50 for a super cheap price. Would it be OK to use in my 2002 silverado 5.3? It doesn't burn a drop of oil as is.

Sure. I'd rather use it in some ope. You will be fine using it in your 5.3. You may loose a little fuel economy though. Super cheap, like how cheap? Less than $2/qt. Count me in. Lol

I would not use such a thick oil if it was given to me. If your truck doesn't burn a drop as is, why mess with success?

I wouldn't be comfortable running that thick. Mix it down or pass. It would be great in an air cooled generator after a hurricane down in FL.

I've run this very oil when it was still called Syntec in a Ford Vulcan.
It caused about a .001 mpg drop in fuel economy.
It also shears to a forty as you pour it through a funnel into the engine.
How cheap is "super cheap"?
For almost free, I'd run it without hesitation.
For two bucks a quart, there are other better choices.

I wouldn't be afraid of trying it, you could mix it with some 5W-20 to dilute it.

I'd want to mix it with a bit of 20W-50 to beef up the bottom end a bit.

I KNOW !!!!

My problem with a 5W-50 is that it's not a 15W-50 !!

5W is so thin that you have to tighten the sump plug really tight to stop it dripping out.
