No. It can't meet dexos1 because, for one, it is not an energy conserving oil. There are no Xw-40 oils on the dexos list.

Does it mean that if I did switched to a 0W30 or 5W30 that is a Dexos1 Gen2 it would provide me with noticeable fuel economy improvements???

It may provide some minuscule FE improvements. Whether it'll be large enough for you to notice, I have no idea.

But it is dexos 2 in Europe and dexos 2 is spec for all GM gas and light diesels, its a superior spec to dexos 1.

Unfortunately, the oil you are referring to is not the same oil that the OP is talking about. The OP is talking about the full SAPS Edge 0w-40 that meets ACEA A3/B4.

The one you are talking about that is available in Europe is low/mid SAPS Edge 0w-40 ACEA C3, which is why it can meet dexos2...

It also contains about 2,400 ppm of Calcium. Far too much for dexos1 gen2. I’d choose Mobil 1 EP if I had a car that spec’d for D1G2.

Edge 0W40 is a great oil, but not Dexos1 as it needs to be an ILSAC grade oil: 0W20, 5W20 or 5W30 (unfortunately not 10W30 which is ILSAC but not Dexos1 - Grrrrr).

Here is a link to all the approved Dexos1-Gen2 oils

Different tires would be a better place to look for FE improvement.

You’re doing it wrong if your looking for FE improvements via engine oil. That should be last resort IMO. Driving habit is where I’d look first and where there’s the most to gain.
