Good evening all,
In other threads, people have posted that Toyota notes that they fill Tundra's with conventional (non-synthetic) 0W-20. I've been looking around at oils lately and haven't seen one single conventional 0W-20 on the shelf!
Searches of common motor oil manufacturers (Castrol, Pennzoil, etc...) confirm that they don't make 0W-20 conventional oil. I can only find references to synthetic 0W-20's.
Anyone here seen a conventional 0W-20? If so, what brand and where?
Or, is the other post from a Toyota assembly worker correct in saying that they use synthetic?
Bottom line, I used to use Mobil 1 exclusively up until six months ago when the price of it went nuts. I switched my vehicles to Wal-Mart Supertech Synthetic, which by all accounts, is a good oil for conventional oil change intervals (<5k miles) and saved a good chunk of money.
Now, I'm looking at 8 quarts of Mobil 1 0W-20 (because that's the only 0W-20 I've seen on the shelves!) at nearly $6 a quart. Ouch. I'd love a conventional or a store-brand synthetic alternative...
