Very nice. Show this to anyone who says “0W-20 is too thin.”

Switch to M1 for real protection. Just a piece of advise. Thank me later.

Can you elaborate on this? Also wondering why anyone should be thanking you for nothing?

Out of curiosity, what oil filter did you use?

Great report! Nothing unusual, flash point is nice and high indicating extremely low fuel dilution (basically none). It would seem that this interval works well for your driving profile.

wow. 5 ppm iron in 10k miles. Very rare to see one this good, but it is a Toyota engine, and they don't make Fe much.
What brand and model of oil filter did you use?

Pretty sure it was a Fram Ultra. This is actually my fathers vehicle and he drives 120 miles round trip each day for work. The car doesn't see any short tripping at all. I was always a bit skeptical of the 10K oil change, but I think I have been convinced.

I run what is spec’d by the manufacturer. My “0W-20 is too thin” comment was aimed at those that say 0W-20 is too thin for cars that actually spec a 0W-20. I’m surprised I had to explain that.

I was only curious what your reasoning was. I tend to go more rogue. The auto industry is moving towards thinner oils. I'm still trying to come to a decision in my mind if the thinner oils are actually "better".

Case in point, I have a 2007 Toyota Tacoma with a 4.0 1GR-FE engine. We just bought a 2018 4Runner that has a version of that same 1GR-FE. My Tacoma says 5w30 on the oil cap and the 4Runner with basically the same engine has 0w20 on the cap. So if 0w20 is "better" for the 4runner, is it also better for the Tacoma?
