The threads show Edge is good, Edge Sport is not.

I usually keep plenty of TWS in my garage...a case or so. But I like to be aware of the alternatives as a just in case. So I don't get caught short one quart and have my heads explode through my hood followed by my pistons being launched out of my block like a rocket into orbit as ottoblotto has warned.
