So, AFE, EP or AP?

Talking about 2GR-FE engine, 0W30 or 5W30?

Thanks.

Depends what you plan on doing with it.

AFE = for best fuel economy

EP = best for long drain intervals such as 15,000 miles

If you plan on changing the oil more frequently, I'd probably go with the AFE 0w30.

What do you mean by "best"?

The 2GR-FE is very easy on oil, so even the cheapest off-the-shelf oil you can find at Walmart or Meijer will get you to 300k on that engine.

To answer your question directly, I'd say 0w40.
For your particular engine, I use 5w30 for the warm season and 0w30 in the cold.
Don't know if that is the best procedure, but has worked well for me for the last 5 years in an Avalon.

The best M1 for you will be the the one that meets the specs for your engine, matches your needs for a motor oil ( long or short oci, economy, etc) and fits your budget. There is no real best.

I'd say a 10W40 for a guy doing a change in Michigan in November is not the best oil.
San Diego, no problem.

How does one know which engines are "easy" on oil or "hard" on oil?? What are the criteria for an engine to be "easy" on oil? I see this statement on here all the time and am puzzled by it.

That's easy when the new AI cars happen they will tell you they are low on oil. Then instead of driving themselves to the oil change they will go see their girl friend for the evening.

All M1 oils are outstanding for their purpose. Any of them will provide very long lasting engines.

The 2GR-FE is easily one of the most discussed engines on these boards alone. Also, there are countless UOAs for these engines using the bulk conventional and cheap synthetic. Most have shown outstanding results.
