I want to know if I can use Castrol Edge 5w30 long life fst in my car

Dear customer, you can continue using the same oil that you have been using.

Let me explain what the oil nomenclature means:
Based on the acronym 5W-30, this oil would be grade 5 at low temperature and 30 at high temperature, which means that it has low viscosity properties and the engine could start at very low temperatures.

Normally after a certain time the oil with low numbering or nomenclature tend to evaporate with the passage of the route, in reality this is a test trial and error, if you felt that the oil has evaporate you must proceed to replace it to a 5W40, Then if it keeps seizing you proceed to replace it yet 10w-40 But considering your case if the last oil never goes by you can be calm and use it.

It will last 6-8 months or 5000 miles in average.

Have you understood me dear customer?
