Pick me an oil from my stash #4671234

Vehicle: 2013 Toyota Tundra 5.7
Manual says: ďSAE 0W-20 is the best choice for good fuel economy and good starting in cold weather.
If SAE 0W-20 is not available, SAE 5W-20 oil may be used. However, it must be replaced with SAE 0W-20 at the next oil change...The 20 in 0W-20 indicates the viscosity characteristic of the oil when the oil is at high temperature. An oil with a higher viscosity (one with a higher value) may be better suited if the vehicle is operated at high speeds, or under extreme load conditions.Ē
I live in Maine where itís 100* in summer and can hit -20 in winter.
I drive relatively easy until itís warmed up fully and like to step on it once in a while.
It is 6 miles to my job five times a week, traveling back road for a few miles then hitting route one with a couple stop lights. So it never fully warms up when I drive to work. I gas up every week and a half traveling the highway 15 miles which is when I feel I am able to open it up without damaging the engine.
Bought the truck new and has less than 30,000 miles which translates to 6,000 miles a year. I ordered a blackstone kit and will get a uoa done when I do my change in the next few weeks. I usually run Mobil 1 afe 0w-20 for one year. Have a bunch of Toyota filters that I will use since I got them for $5 each at the dealership and stocked up in fear of them increasing in price. I had a Ď99 Tacoma that Toyota bought back due to the frame rot issue and put all that money down on this tundra. Iím lucky as I just made the last payment on this beast!
Hereís my stash:
24 qt. napa syn 0w-20 nov 2015
20 qt. Milesyn synthetic 0w-20 July 2017
8 qt magnatec 0w-20 April 2016
10 qt magnatec 5w-20 June 16
20 qt Mobil ep 0w-20
21qt Quaker state 0w-20 nov 2016
5 qt Quaker state syn 5w-20 July 15
22 qts idemitsu 0w-20
*Also 12 qts milesyn 5w-30

Ideally I would like to use the oldest oil first (which would mean mixing qs 5w20 with 0w-20) but with all the pennzoil fallout happenings Iím worried about the freshest oil I have-milesyn 0w-20 in a 5 gal pail. Also I would like to use the ďquietestĒ motor oil I have to see if I can tell if there really is a difference. Basically Iím torn between: pail, quietest, or oldest oil. What would you choose?

As you can see, having an overwhelming stash makes things too complicated! I have lots conventional oil too but thatís reserved for the other vehicle.

When was the last time Valvoline produced a passenger vehicle jug in a gallon container?
You need to use that old stuff-up.

My vote goes for the Magnatec 5W20. They all sound like winners though.

A little math.
142 quarts of oil. Estimating 6qt oil/change that's 23 oil changes. At 6K/year and assuming 6K OCI for easy math that is 23 years of oil changes. You better have the same vehicle since the oil specifications will change on newer cars and make this stash obsolete.

Using the freshest oil doesn't make since since your last oil change from this stash will be 20+ years old. Just start changing it at 3K intervals.

Oh the troubles of the first world.
Plenty of ways:
1 Take your wife and have her pick the "prettiest" one.
2 Shake the shelf, whatever falls off, use that.
3 Or logically, first in - first out.
