I don't see the prohibition against Shell gasoline in this part of the Owner's Manual.

It was a regional thing, June can tell you why not to mix Shell and Mobil products in the a Florida market

My 2006 has the Castrol logo on the cap too. Volvo likely paired up with them on the race circuit during that time - you know - cross marketing agreements and such.
Probably in 2006 also.

Ok I'll bite/retract. Volvo engineering works directly with Castrol. Edge is their 'top shelf' product, it goes without saying most any vehicle will be better off with premium oils
I just purchased one oil change worth and will compare it to the Rotella T6.
