So, Iím toying with idea of trying a 0w20 oil in the 09í camry. May just stick with 5w30 or even 5w20 QSGB. I average 12,xxx miles a year.


Mostly highway driving and car has 128,xxx miles on it with 0 or ZERO consumption

Thanks

My 2007 Ford Fusion performs quite well on 0-20 at 217K. No oil consumption at my usual 10K OCI.

If you do switch over you may notice some consumption because of the change over esp with M1 or Pennzoil synthetics. But just stick with it for a few intervals and that should subside. Or just switch back to the 30wt grade in the summer time, May/June. Then run the 0w20 for the winter for nice, easy start ups.

edit. Also when plugging in your vehicle's information on Amsoil's site it lists 0w20 as acceptable for you to use. When I plug in the Matrix it says 5w30. For an 07 Focus it says 5w20. So it seems pretty accurate.

Also my 2007 Ford Focus had 175K on it with the same results as the Fusion. Vehicle was totaled in June.

I wouldn't just because of the possible increased risk of consumption.

Judging by your OP and signature, you are currently running 5w30. Id just stick with that.

Be interesting to see if 0W-20 makes the engine noisier.

Different strokes. Stay with the 5-30 you have been using for 128,000. You can try one of the thinner 5-30's,if you wish. .02.

Good one matt smile

J/k of course. Winter shaping up to be COLD so far but 0w20 I doubt would hurt anything
