I just did a fill of Magnatec 5W30 in my 4.0L 1GRFE tacoms engine, It take 5.5 qt but I only had a 5qt jug of the Magnatec so I added a half qt of 5W30 PP I had left over from another car. The PP poured noticeably thinner than the Magnatec going around and down the funnel even though they were both 5w30.

Is there a VOA or spec sheet for these two oils that would confirm this difference?

Magnetec is blended towards the top of the 30 wt limits. 11.2 link to Magnetec data sheet link to Pennzoil 5W-30 Platinum data
