Doing 2nd oil change on the Taco. Going to be doing 10k mile OCI, fram ultra filter. 20 mile commute back and forth 5 days a week (40 miles total per day) of rural highway (45 to 50mph) with 2 60mile highway trips back and forth 2 days a week any advantage of one or the other? Weight will be 0w20. Vehicle is in my signature below.

Yeah, PP is half the cost and at 10k you won't see any difference between the two. Save the money IMHO.

Personally, I'd use M1 AFE or EP over PP, but PP is still a solid oil.
AP is too costly for an oil of which we have very little service history.
No need to use it on 10K drains that could be easily accommodated with a cheaper oil.

Even the cheap synthetics like QSUD and Mobil Super Synthetic (and the house brands) should be able to handle a mfr-spec 10k OCI, especially the highway miles of your driving conditions smile

I put "Mobil 1 AP" in the title, I intended to say EP (Extended Performance0

I would say that using any similar price point oil there will not be a difference no matter how long you keep the Toyota. Todays oils are excellent.

I'd use whichever of those is cheapest at the time of the change. I doubt you'll notice a difference. I don't think the extra cost of AP or EP does anything for your scenario unless you want to start stretching the change interval.

What kind of oil life meter does the car have? What does Toyota say for a change interval?

I've run both M1 AFE 0w20 and pp 0w20 in my 14 sienna 2GRFE. The AFE has slightly but noticeably higher valve train noise after the change. There are lots of threads on this but non show inferior UOIs. The PP and other oil are quieter.

He may have relied on those silly PQIA VOAs which show that M1 AFE offers significantly better W end numbers than PP. Lower NOACK as well.
Still, unless the OP needs to do -35C starts on winter mornings, which he won't in NH, the difference is probably more theoretical than real.
Either M1 AFE or EP in this grade is documented as having plenty of Grp IV in the basestock blends used while PP uses a GTL Grp III basestock, for whatever that's worth.

You only have to really consider one thing Mobil 1 AP is easier to find on sale and I'd wager it will be cheaper.
