Hi,
Anyone have any feedback about NAPA's 5w30 synthetic. I know that it is Valvoline oil. I'm looking for a decent synthetic to run in the two Toyotas we own. My friend is a Toyota tech and swears by the conv. 5w30 oil. Any feedback would be great.

Scott

ok,,u can type the oils u want to research in the search section at the top of this site. U will find a million opinions on oils of all flavors,lol. I have use Napa synthetic oil in my quest to settle on my current oil. Napa synthetic oil did well in my van, by well I mean, the engine did not blow up or use oil, so that's my experience. I have used many brands of oil on that van years ago, mostly dino and what can I say,,,the van is still running. Napa synthetic will do well.

There's at least one VAO of this oil, and a comparison to Synpower 5W-30, in the VOA section, FYI. There are also a few UOA's.
