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?
