I just purchased a 2010 Tundra 5.7 flex and wonder what oil you recomend. I usually go with Mobil 1 but the dealership was talking to me about some B&G oil that would give me a 250,000 mile warranty at $80.00 and oil change and I have to stay with it each time. Any input would be great.

Ps I know this has been asked several times but I am new to this board and can't quite figure out the search.

Sorry,

Sounds like the dealership is giving you a load of BS. I think everyone would be on this bandwagon if we could pull a 250,000 mile warranty out of the engine with this so called "B&G oil" at 80 bucks a pop. I say stick with mobile 1, and do the oil changes yourself. JMO

I recommend 5w20 or 0w20. Any recommendation beyond that is entirely up to you and your pocket book.

the recommended toyota 0w20 synthetic changed every 10K miles is fine for me.

Ask them if BG sells a 20 weight oil and see what they say.

Because BG doesn't sell a 20 weight oil. Which is clearly spec'd in almost all 2010 Toyota engines.

The other thing to consider is this... if you do Mobil 1, and bring in your own oil, you're still paying about $75 an oil change. The price isn't bad - unless B&G (I'm not familiar) is a conventional.

I'd still say Mobil1 or Semi-synthetic. No need to buy the really high end oils if you're going to be changing them religiously.

Amsoil 0w-20 change at every 10K and filter at 5k.
