Reading all posted answers was interesting. Here is my info you should know... Fuel savings between the 2 grades can only be measured in lab since it is so small( you would not be able to measure it in any fuel savings!). Stay with the factory Spec.

Rotella 5W40 is a solid choice although it's only a gallon jug and you will need 6 qrts. Penzoil Platinum 10W30 runs quiet in a 4.0L where as the M1 oils for some reason can potentially be a little noisy in the 4.0 L. If you were happy with M1 befo

I used Walmart to change oil for $14.99(supertech everything) on my 95 Civic years ago from 150k-200k. Never had any issues and sold the car perfectly running with 255k on it.

American brands do trucks really well. I would buy a Silverado, Ram or F-150 if it was me. FWIW I have a friend who gets worse gas mileage from a manual transmission Tacoma than what I get from a fullsize. No brainer to me plus no expensive inhere

A Walmart TLE is probably no worse than any other source of service. In terms of cost, I've recently bought two jugs of M1 EP plus an M1 oil filter for $20.50 total after store deals and the MIR. With even casually careful shopping, you can easily g
