Came across this Edge 0-40 A3/B4 . It did not say US like the other Castro Edge containers Iíve seen. It meets MB 229.5. What do we know about it?

That's the good stuff mate !!
It's SN/CF, A3/B4. BMW LL-01, MB 229.5, VW 502/505 and Porsche A40. A full house of Euro OEM specs.

You could put it in a boutique bottle and double it's price.

HTHS > 3.5 cP
Noack < 10 %
TBN > 10
And healthy ZDDP at about ~ 1100 ppm Zn

Edit Reason: A very stout oil

This is the standard Canadian version of Castrol Edge 0w-40, probably made in Germany on the bottle, that's what mine say. It goes on sale regularly.

That's a stout oil, very nice.
Here in Spain it's crazy expensive though, 46,90 Eur for a 5L jug, ouch.

I was always wondering what is the difference between HX8 & Ultra? Grp. III vs GTL?

Fischer Tropsch base oil is listed in the MSDS for HX8,so they may be using the same GTL base for both HX8 and Ultra,just marketing the HX8 towards a different sector with the ECT tec.

It's on sale right now at Canadian Tire in fact, for $32.xx per 5L jug.

Would be interesting to know, HX8 is kind of rare, don't see it much in stores.

Ultra is indeed an outstanding oil given its price, i've had a mad idea of using it in my Escort by mixing some SHU 5W-40 with some Rimula R4X 15W-40 HDEO to get higher Zddp.
