Default what's the consesus on this new Castrol Edge oil?

Autozone emailed me a coupon for $3 off per quart with a 12 quart limit, should I try it or stick with my original plan of using Rotella with the next oil change?

Whatever it is, it's probably crap. RotellaT synthetic, Mobil1, or Amsoil/Redline.

Probably is, I tried their Syntec a few years back in the first Miata and it sucked big time. I used to use GTX in my Jeep and was satisfied, but their Synthetics seem a bit weak.

find a virgin oil analysis, compare to a UOA then decide. It would be nice if Castrol could bring themselves to market GC over here, but even if they did I'd stick with my synthetic Rotella.
