So I know this is a new product. Has anyone used it? Thinking about trying some out in the 15 CRV.

I think it has been out for a few years actually, never really caught on though. Instead of 25% why not 100%? I use Renewable Lubricants (RLI) and love it. 100% plant based ester oil and it is crazy how good it runs in a lot of engines here. A bit costly but I find it worth it. I have a 5 gallon pail of the 5w20, and probably 40 quarts of some of their other oil grades (w30, 5w40, 15w40, 10w30, 5w30, ect.)

Another Motorcar product co-opting a food source!

My corn chips are already 7 bucks a pound due likely to ETHANOL in fuel!

Likely a very nice oil but I have NEVER been entirely happy with Ti additised lubricants. And YES i've run EDGE gold bottle and Kendall. I think if you go Ti stay Ti or reap the horror of withdrawal.
