Would SUPERTECH syn be ok for 10k? #4565219

Wondering if a run on 10k on SuperTech 5w-20 full syn would be ok in my 2013 Camry 2.5L 2AR-FE? Car has 65k on it.

The oem filter always looks ok after 10k with 5k oil change. It does 50miles a day at 55, reaches what should be full temp of course. We have four seasons if that is a factor with some mild chances for dilution and or some high temp exposure if the 10k rund through a summer and into a winter.

Just wondering.

Yes, ST syn should be just fine for 10k with no problems. You may also want to consider the ST 0w20

Yes, second person in a day I have hear good things about Mahle.

I got the 5W on a Wal-Mart web special (one that wasn't a "web error" which was sweet). Indeed back to 0W next time I stock my shelves.

Heres one data point.

For highway miles, it should be fine but the only way to be sure is to run say 7500 miles and do a UOA to make sure things are OK to 10K.

Make sure your filter is up to the task.

Your car and a UOA will tell your for sure. Run one at 6000 and see what you get. One OIC 4000 miles less is going to cost you squat!

It is GF-5 which what Toyota recommends, so should be fine. But Toyota does recommend 0w20.

I'd run it for 10,000 and not lose any sleep over it.

Probably can do it. But, considering that you can buy other better rated synthetics as cheap or cheaper on rebate (M1, PP, QSUD, Synpower, etc.) why do it? Are they selling SuperTech fully syn for under $12/jug now?

Does a 0w-20 ST Syn exist? I haven't seen it here, but I'd be interested in it.

I thought I saw 2 reports that barely made it to 10,000 miles. Itís a 7,500 mile oil.

That's because you got plenty of money to buy a new engine I'm assuming.

We just don't have as much money as you and can't afford to dump top tiered synthetics at 1.5k.. crackmeup
