Three of my local pep boys stores are closing. I was surprised to see 0W-30 on the shelf. I picked up 20qts at $3.00 each. Is this old stock?

All my cars are old so SL will do. I think SM leaves less deposits. Still wondering if they got it from a wharehouse sitting for years.

That's the Belgian 0W30, that replaced the beloved German 0W30. Still good stuff, though.

Pretty much ANY PB qualifies as a warehouse where it's been sitting for years, their synthetic motor oil prices have been non-competitive 99.9% of the time!

on the castrol turkey site there are 2 types of 0W-30 edge C3 products:

the "plain" edge can be found easily on online stores; however edge professional cannot be.

i checked their PDSs and there is difference.

also 0W-30 edge professional does not exist on UK and DE castrol sites (if i saw that correctly)

what do you think of the diff between two? almost similar products or totally different?

It's SL because of it's ZDDP content, not because it is old or inferior.
