I just bought three 5 qt jugs of this on amazon for about $55 shipped / $16.55 each plus tax.
It was advertised at $17.49 each but at the checkout the lower price showed up so I bought 3 instead of just 2.

I'm going to run this in the Prius starting in the Spring.

Good price.

I ran it in the fiancee's 18 Civic 1.5T this last fill. 6200+ miles. I took a sample - just need to find time to get it sent off.

During the time it was in there, she was working only about 3 miles from home, so, I'm not expecting a great UOA.

VME 0W-20 I got on clearance from AZ went in this time.

I’ve never run castrol except when I raced motor cross in the 90’s using their 2 cycle which was king back then. I did however score a bunch of maxlife 0-20 synthetic for $1.92 a qt that I’m gonna back spec in my 09 Nissan 2.5 as an experiment to slow down consumption or blow it up.

I used to run Castrol conv in my '94 Honda Civic that I bought new and put 255k miles on.
I did a Castrol conv 10w30 or 5w30 + Honda OEM filter change with it every 3k miles and it seemed to do a great job.

Hi friends. I'm a long time reader and first time poster.

Hoping there are a few oil gurus here that can weigh in. I have a 2019 range rover evoque and like many, I would like to change my own oil more frequently than every 16K miles indicated in the manual.

Of course the manual specifies using oil that complies with the STJLR.51.5122 spec which is:
CASTROL EDGE Professional E 0W-20 (Product Code: 468056) $15 per Quart
https://msdspds.castrol.com/bpglis/...018025845100071859/$File/BPXE-A9VG8C.pdf
Ingredients from the Safety Sheet:
- Synthetic base stock. Highly refined base oil (IP 346 DMSO extract < 3%). Proprietary performance additives.
- Distillates (petroleum), hydrotreated heavy paraffinic ≥75 - ≤90
- Distillates (petroleum), hydrotreated heavy paraffinic ≤5
- Distillates (petroleum), solvent-dewaxed heavy paraffinic ≤3

However, I also found this oil for only $7 per quart which complies with the Audio/VW 508/509 spec:
Castrol EDGE Professional LL IV FE 0W-20 (Product Code: 469279)
https://msdspds.castrol.com/bpglis/...5E802582F3006B6939/$File/BPXE-AKE6LY.pdf
Ingredients from the Safety Sheet:
- Synthetic base stock. Highly refined base oil (IP 346 DMSO extract < 3%). Proprietary performance additives.
- Distillates (petroleum), hydrotreated heavy paraffinic ≥25 - <50
- 1-Decene, homopolymer, hydrogenated ≥10 - ≤25
- Dec-1-ene, homopolymer, hydrogenated Dec-1-ene, oligomers, hydrogenated ≥10 - ≤25
- Distillates (petroleum), hydrotreated heavy paraffinic ≤10
- Distillates (petroleum), solvent-dewaxed heavy paraffinic ≤3

As you can see they are fairly similar but the LL IV FE obviously has more additives/ingredients however:
Both are Castrol Edge Professional
Both have this Titaniam FST (whatever that is)
Both are the same weight.

So although they are not the exact same, does one product or the other appear to be superior? Should I just pay the $15 per quart for the E version or is the LL IV FE product inferior and hence why it is $7 per quart?

Thanks for your input:

Castrol EDGE Professional LL IV FE 0W-20 (Product Code: 469279)

I don't have the HTHS viscosity to run a calculation, but it's very likely that LL IV FE 0W-20 is made from a considerably thinner base oil and it contains considerably more viscosity-index improver (VII). These are evident from a higher KV100 and a higher VI.

LL IV FE also has a weaker additive package (less sulphated ash).

As a result LL IV FE will result in more engine wear and more engine deposits than E C5 in a demanding engine like a Jaguar engine.

I wouldn't get the cheap LL IV FE 0W-20, even if it contains PAO.

If cost is an issue, there are other oils that have the Jaguar specs, such as the Mobil 1 ESP x2 0W-20.

I hope this helps. Some OEM 0W-20 specs are very strict, and most 0W-20 oils don't satisfy them.

Thanks for the reply and your knowlege.
It looks like Mobil 1 ESP x2 0W-20 is also not readily available.
I'm fine with buying the Castrol EDGE Professional if I need to but really only see it online at rover parts for nearly $16 a quart which is more than outrageous.

I've seen some other oils which also have the STJLR.51.5122 spec such as:
- Liqui Moly Special Tec LR 0W-20
- Motul Specific 5122
- Revenol

But those are all climbing high enough in price where I may as well go with the Catrol product. I was really just trying to find a Castrol product that was of the same or better quality which was MORE readily available and not just from a one or two sources.

The only other Castrol Edge Pro alternative I was eyeing that appears to check almost every box is
CASTROL EDGE HIGH MILEAGE - ADVANCED FULL SYNTHETIC which was about $10.
- Superior protection in direct injection engines, including GDI Turbo, FSI, SIDI and EcoBoost (My car has a turbo)
- Exceeds API SN Plus, ILSAC GF-5, ACEA A1/B1 C5, GM Dexos1 Gen 2, Ford WSS-M2C947-B1
