I was pretty impressed by the results. This is my last oil change with supertech though, I switched to the costco oil which I think most of the community knows is made by warren so I'm pretty much using the same oil. I made the switch because the costco oil is a better deal at regular price.Between costco's price and buying OEM filters in bulk my oil changes are down to $13.58. Can't get any better than that given the results. I'd love to find a sale on the costco oil. I just might buy out the whole shelf. I'm wondering if my 4.88 gears are putting less load on the engine. Factory gear was 3.91, with 30" tires. I went to 33s and my math showed me I needed 4.30 gears but decided for 4.88s for offroading purposes given my truck is a manual and I wanted to be off the clutch more.

To add fuel to the fire for these guys this isn't a sample with all easy highway miles. I rev it out all the time, especially trying to get on the highway, with my gear ratios I'll get to the redline in 2nd and 3rd gear. Also many instances of bouncing off the rev limiter doing donuts and drifts in the mud were had. I mainly got the test done to see how bad I was beating this thing so to see this result I was very surprised to say the least.

Maybe the 5w30 is whats helping me out here. Toyota specs 0w20, but after getting a new short block under warranty I've been using 5w30.

Well, you can credit two factors here.
1) Toyota makes very good engines.
2) SuperTech is a very good oil.

Although QSUD is my go to oil, ST is my 2nd choice.
My 3rd choice is, any spec'd oil for my vehicles that can get my claws on at a severely discounted/discontinued price.

Nice, thanks for posting, yup, there is no evidence on earth that any oil purchased in any retail store will prevent wear better then Super Tech.

Changed at the proper OCI with a good filter? No truer statement has ever been made.

So if this UOA is based on 50% of the OCI, should we really be surprised with the results? After all it is an approved lubricant.

We shouldn't be surprised, unfortunately there are a lot of people here that continue to think Warren synthetics aren't on par with the big names. I think Supertech synthetics are great oils at great prices.

I'd be more impressed if you ran it for 15k miles and got similar results. That you got these numbers after only 5k miles is not any surprise whatsoever.

I made a habit of running ST dino 5w-20 in my 4.6L Fords for 10k miles; never had anything but stellar low wear.


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money
