Greetings from Australia .
Iv recently been gifted a bottle of diesel 0-40 Castro edge.
In Australia we have two varietys the MB/bmw rated 0-40 and the diesel version .
So my question is the 0-40 diesel version ok to use in my petrol 1.3L Toyota yaris(2013).
It's a little confusing as the Castro site says it's fine for high performance petrol and diesel variety but on the bottle it's says diesel only . [url=en_au/australia/car-engine-oil/engine-oil-viscosity/0w-40.html]en_au/australia/car-engine-oil/engine-oil-viscosity/0w-40.html[/url]

Does it say API SL, SM or SN on the front or back of the bottle?

That would indicate it is appropriate for gas powered cars.

Overkill for Yaris but yes it will work fine. It's dual rated for petrol and diesel.

Completly agree it's overkill what would the PIC be for mostly highway and 15min plus trip driving .

Yes Exactly, it will work without problems, just a bit on the thick side for a Yaris. Still there are people out there in Oz using Magnatc 10W40 and a few using GTX 20W50 in the same car, so you are not alone. I would keep the oil change interval (OCI) to 10,000 KM or less. it's a mid SAPS oil, so not long distance (even though they do that in Europe), 7000KM if you want to be super safe.

Oh and ... G'day Bradyaris....Welcome !

Thank you for the reply will follow your instructions.
The current fill is Castrol edge 5-30 should the same OCI be followed .

If it's Castrol Edge 5W30 A3/B4 then that is a full-SAPS Euro long life oil and I would run it out to 15,000 KM.

The edge 5W30 is mighty close to being a 40 grade, so if the old Yaris is happy on that, it will also behave the same on the 0W40. I agree with SR5, wind out the kms to at least 10,000 on the 5W30.

I'm going to get a UOA on my Subaru (non turbo) forester in a few months and post here. Using the 5W30 edge too. I haven't found any UOA here for the Edge 5W30 A3/B4 so it will be interesting to see how our Aussie version of edge holds up to 100% city driving, 9-10,000 kms with 15 months of use.
