1. I'm dumb about oil.
2. I want to do 10,000 mile oil changes...
3. I want spend $25 on my oil changes that I do myself.
4. I found Pen plat ultra for $14 on sale at walmart, regular pen plat $12
5. I need an oil filter that won't break my budget - I never considered filters that are over $7 but maybe I should?
6. I'm not a "reader", but I'm good for a couple paragraphs.
7. I drive my tundra gingerly to save fuel
8. any benefit to mobil 1 extended performance over that Penzoil for my usage and interval?

recommendations?

Id use Pennz Ult Plat and a Fram Ultra. If need to spend less, use a TG or OEM filter instead.

That's the one filter I'll stay away from just because I've seen a bunch of videos online that show they have no endcaps so dirty oil can just flow into the motor if the little seal breaks... Maybe that doesn't matter... I dunno but I'm still scared away...

Scared of the OEM filter? OK. Use any filter that is rated 10K+ on the box. Use any oil that is rated for 10K+ miles. Easy

What does the owners manual recommend? The best you could get is marketing claims and regurgitated marketing claims presented as facts

I have an 07 Tundra, original owner, 156k, with the 5.7.

I have been doing 10k intervals since 60k, use mobil 1 0w20 oil and whatever filter. Napa gold, fram, toyota, any one seems fine.

Doubt you are going to do a 25 dollar change, unless you use conventional oil and no filter. Truck takes 7.5 quarts of oil, so unless you found
Idemitsu oil for .65 a quart, I would say you re looking at 50 bucks for synthetic oil and a new filter.

I would go to walmart, buy 3 five quart containers of Mobil1, and two filters. Two changes for probably 95-100 bucks.

You get get valvoline for 22 compared to mobil1 25.00

You think his name being "joekar" and his profession being "Obgyn" gave it away LOL crackmeup.
