I just picked up some Toyota 0w-20 and the price has finally broken the $6.00/litre mark - it is now Cdn$6.01/litre. Still the best everyday price for a synthetic oil. This is my 19th oil change using Toyota 0w-20. My 2010 RAV4 4-cylinder now has 205,000 km. I intend to run it to 400k. Fingers crossed.

Pennzoil Platinum is a better deal when on sale at CDN Tire. $28 for 5L..if there is a rebate it is even less.

400K kms ?!?...pffttt...I'll be there next year...child's play for PP.

248K (miles) is not really all that far. Should do that without a problem depending the type of driving..

The question isn't "will the engine and oil handle it"?

it's more like:
"will the rest of the vehicle be able to handle it??"
(body, suspension, accessories etc)

That is pretty cheap converted to USD.
Nothing wrong with TGMO, but far from the best 0W-20 one could buy.

With all the dexos G2 reformulating going on, it will be hard to tell. I think Mobil1 makes it for the US market, not sure of the Canadian market but I suspect Petro Canada.

At one time it was a high moly high boron oil. I think that has changed unless you get the Idemitsu made stuff for the Japan domestic market.
