2012 Toyota Sienna = 1 year or 10,000 miles OCI.

Been using Mobil 0W-20 AFE and was thinking about trying Pennzoil Platinum 0W-20 (due to rebates). Is the Pennzoil on par with Mobil?

I'd go with the cheaper one, since there is no reliable data on which one will help me reach 200,000 miles. Every time we see any data presented others will detract from it and say it doesn't represent real life conditions. They are both good. Go with the deals.

If someone didn't tell you it now has PP in it you or the engine wont notice the difference. The mind on the other hand plays strange games though, you may or may not hear noises that were never there before, all sorts of stuff, you may get little visitors that only speak to you.

Thanks guys. The tech sheet didn't show toyota spec. I believe Mobil does. Will try then. Appreciate it.

I use them all in my Camry and Valvoline Synthetic. It's only oil.

Hard to beat the Mobil 0W-20's, 25 bucks a jug is already pretty darn cheap.

California the extra cold temp performance the M1 0w-20 might bring to the table is irrelevant, run whichever you can get a better deal on.

Get the Pennzoil Platinum

- My vehicle is older ('07 tC) and the Toyota 2AZ-FE is a lot smoother and quieter on PP oil. (I used to exclusively use Mobil 1 and the car has used it for 75% of its life since bought new)
- It's cheaper than Mobil 1 majority of the time.
- For a car that probably going to be just a daily driver then go for the cheaper of the two. (Other cheaper brands to consider as well)

Get the M1 0w20. Tig1's proof is enough for me smile



I'm not buying into PP "natural gas tech". M1 good enough for OVERKILL and Tig1 that's proof enough

That's comical, given they are both produced by the same company.

10k OCI in Sienna is easy, you can use any 0w20.
