Would Mobil 1 AFE 0W-20 be good for 1 year in the Tundra listed in my signature. My powertrain warranty will expire soon, so I plan to go to longer oil change intervals. This truck has an 8 quart sump and does not get pushed hard at all. I occasionally tow 5,000 pounds but not on a regular basis and haul a 800 pound atv in the back sometimes. I drive it between 7 and 8 thousand miles a year.

I have a trusted mechanic that charges $10, plus the oil and filter for an oil change. With the skid plate removal and the messy cartridge filter on this thing, it's worth it to me.

How many miles do you drive in a year?

Toyota says 10k with synthetic is perfectly OK, and AFE is one of the best. However, PP is on sale and a rebate, making it just $3/qt, and is every bit as good as the M1.

The dealer uses Castrol Syntec 0W-20 and is about $20 cheaper but honestly, dealer oil changes scare me. I have not found anything wrong but I'm skeptical anytime I can't see what they are doing...or not doing in this case.

I may just wrestle with the skid plate and cartridge filter and do it myself. At least I will know what I put in the engine and I will know the filter was changed.

Get a good synthetic oil and a reasonable oil filter for 1 year OCI.

Mobil 1 0W20 is as good as any synthetic oil you can buy on a shelf at Walmart or other auto parts stores.

I'm a fan of 0w20 magnatec or Edge but M1 is a good oil.

$10?

Dont let your mechanic lowball himself. Maybe you could buy him his own jug or provide him with more money, a holiday bonus, or something nice!
