Hi All
I'm a newbie here and was hoping to get some insight to which would be better to run
in my 2010 tundra dbl cab 5.7, I've seen articles that say slick 50 is no good to use because it leaves deposits where you don't want them, some say it is, just looking for some insight & thoughts
thanks

Slick 50 is nothing more than PTFE (teflon) suspended in oil. If I recall correctly, the had a big class action suit against them by the FTC.

Don't waste your money. Just use good oil and you'll have all the protection you need.

There are many threads on this subject - try this link

put sand in the oil filler tube. it will collect the surplus teflon stuff so it wont be left behind. dont worry your oil filter will catch it all.

Think about what the $1 million+ dollar a year paid executives at the oil additive and synthetic oil companies don't want you to know.

They don't want you to know that if you use ordinary 5W-20 conventional (dino) oil and change it at least every 5,000 miles and perform all other needed preventive maintenance on time, your Toyota engine will not only still be running when it hits the 400,000 mile mark, the compression on each cylinder will also still be high and the rate of oil consumption will still be low.

Since the synthetic oil and additive makers are well aware that conventional oil can keep a Toyota engine running for over 400,000 miles, they are forced to use SUBLIMINAL marketing techniques to get the public to buy expensive synthetics
and additives. Example: Valvoline says it will warranty any engine for 200,000 miles if the owner uses conventional oil, 250,000 if semi-synthetic is used, 300,000 if full synthetic is used (or figures similar to those). Thus Valvoline gets the public to IMAGINE that synthetic greatly reduces wear. That's how subliminal marketing works. It works great and the $1 million+ dollar a year executives laugh all the way to the bank.
