OK.... Toyota USA requires 0W-20 in order to get their CAFE credits. But what are you using to protect your engine? Post here.
Wow, really? I've always used Mobil 1, but I've heard nothing but praise for Royal Purple for years. I figured I'd try it. I guess I need to do better research!Royal Purple is a **** brand oil imo. It's a gimmick. I saw more Subaru owners blow their motor (cracking a ringland) using Royal Purple than any other brand oil.
Just keep it simple and follow the manual. 0w-20 works fine.I want to have something cleared. I have a 2016 scion iM, the book says that it uses 0w-20 and its good for cold weather, and it also says to increase viscosity if driven in high velocities or something about loads. I live in Puerto Rico its always hot here. Should i use 5w-20 instead or i should stay with the 0w-20 even though i dont live in cold weather?
I had my LiquiMoly 0W-20 oil change today. I am impressed! My car drives really smooth and solid. Overall, it feels better than Pennzoil Ultra Platinum or standard Mobil oil they use at the dealership. It is available on Amazon and the jug said it is made in Germany.I had Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 0w-20 and a TRD oil filter for 5,000 miles. I liked it, but nothing really impressive. I just ordered a cheap Purolator filter and a jug of LiquiMolly 0w-20 synthetic, I will have my oil change in about a month (I get oil changes every 5,000 miles despite what our manual recommends).
As far as I understand, 0W-20 only comes in synthetic these days. I haven't yet seen any mineral 0w-20 oil.
I'll keep that in mind for when I need to start doing my own.I had my LiquiMolly 0W-20 oil change today. I am impressed! My car drives really smooth and solid.
