My 5.7 runs whatever clearance/sale syn + OEM filter @5k intervals. Just easier to remember to do since that's the programmed dummy light. Was ST syn for awhile. Now it's going to be a running RGT for a couple years with the stashed I picked up in Dec. [Linked Image]

Of course, it's a very well built engine and will give you great service with any reasonable maintenance interval. With that in mind, why not use M1, as it's available everywhere, for a reasonable price, and will completely prevent any risk of piston ring sticking that can happen with extended drain intervals on conventional oils.



Piston ring sticking is pretty common on a Toyota using inferior oil.

Without opening-up a can of worms and citing inferior oils by name or grade, which are your three favorite non-inferiors?

Because it calls for 0w20...


just like every Toyota, but runs better on higher viscosity


No, it doesn't. What proof do you have of this? What does "it runs better" mean? LOL.

Maybe the proof comes from various Toyota forums..... current and former owners.
If you haven't felt differences in your vehicle after trying new oils and viscosites - different gasolines and octanes, then maybe it's genes inside your body that's missing / absent.

I've owned a dozen new vehicles over the years and none was more sensitive than my 99' Chevy S10 with H.O. 4.3 V6. I knew immediately after changing to Valvoline Maxlife Synblend. I knew immediately after filling my gas tank with Shell 93 octane. If you can't feel any difference, then either you haven't been changing products, or something's amiss (or over-abundant) inside your body.

No need to apologize. We are all built a little differently. Some carry more sensitivities than others.
It's certainly not a laughing matter. But before you try to disprove anything on this board about Toyotas, read all the various forums /messageboards on Toyotas. Google is your friend. All those owners bring / express all kinds of experiences to the table.

My point was that the Toyota engineers know what they are doing. The Tundra performs fantastic on the oil spec that Toyota engineers stipulate with optimal fuel economy. This is because of countless engineering hours and tests. I trust that way more than someone choosing to run a different viscosity because they "feel" that it "runs better."

You can only trust personal experiences. But you can sense if it's the truth, by reading what thousands of other Toyota owners have to say on the matter.

I am done with this. Some people you can teach and some are just plain stubborn and want to listen to only engineers.

In other words, if an engineer says 0w20 is best and your vehicle runs better on 5w30, then you should be telling that engineer he's full of krappola.

Powersurge
If the engineer doesn't say the 0w20 is better, his boss reams him a new buttski and threatens to fire him because of governmental mandates on fuel economy.

If that same engineer gets transferred to Toyota Australia, he is going to tell you that the best oils for the Tundra is 5w/30/40.
Again, I'm done with this. Onto another topic.....

BTW - what I said was correct. In reading your profile of many posts, in my opinion, you cannot see the forest from the trees. You don't seem to comprehend looking past - or beyond some topics. The straight and narrow is only a safe mode. Look at a broader picture in topics like this.

I am a member of three Toyota Tundra forums. Sure, there are few who espouse similar nonsense as you, but the majority on those forums run the Toyota spec'd oil weight as they should because they believe in rational, scientific decisions, not feelings.
