Greetings and salutations.

I'm supposed to pick up the Lexus this weekend and in order to get to the stores on Saturday to pick the oil I'm facing the old dilemma ie. what oil to use.

The car has 120k miles on the clock and has full service history. At this point I do not unfortunately have a slightest idea of what oil has been used but I just wish to treat her well and keep her for a long time.

My use will be mix of cruising in town, commuting and touring perhaps 10k miles per year - my daily driver is the Corolla in signature.

As I have mentioned earlier the 5W-30 is somewhat odd viscosity over here and the availability is limited and sometimes quite expensive, such as Castrol Edge.

This is what the manual says:



These are the 5W-30 oils that seem to be easy to get locally:


Valvoline MaxLife 5W-30: WSS-M2C913-A WSS-M2C913-B WSS-M2C913-C, API SJ, ACEA A1-02/A5-02/B1-02


Ford Formula F 5W-30: WSS-M2C913-B, WSS-M2C913-C, API SL, ILSAC GF-3, ACEA A1/B1


GM Longlife: ACEA A3/B4 ja C3, API SM/CF, GM-LL-A-025, GM-LL-B-025, BMW LL-04, MB 229.51


Mobil Super 3000 X1 5W-30: ACEA A5/B5, API SL, Ford WSS-M2C913-C, Ford WSS-M2C913-B, Ford WSS-M2C913-A

Then there's of course Mobil 1 0W-40 and Shell Helix Ultra 5W-40 and other oils as well.

Of these 5W-30 oils above what would you recommend or does it matter ie. would each and every one suit the 1UZ-FE just fine?
