    20,000 Mile Oil Analysis

    Great report. Glad to see these motors still put out stellar numbers even when running on the highway more. I was curious how these cars handled long highway runs. For comparison purposes, I did 15k in the city/suburbs on a few runs and it looked great as well. <a...

    Amsoil Signature Series Fuel-Efficient vs maxlife ATF

    I've used it for 60k in a 2016 Camry without issue. Toyota WS was shot and shifting funny at 23k. It's also been in my Prius for about 49k so far. No issues there either.

    '11 Prius 15k OCI Amsoil 0W-20

    I'm gonna stay with 15k. I jack the car to rotate tires and look it over every 7500 so it keeps the math simple on maintenance.

    '11 Prius 15k OCI Amsoil 0W-20

    Yes, SS. I'm actually really happy with it. The car is not used "lightly" and the engine sees a lot of loaded start/stops. The results were better then I thought and I'm happy the extended drains aren't having a negative effect.

    Thanks. I thought I had but apparently not!

    Filter changed at 7500 miles into the run and 1/2 qt added to top off oil.

    Amsoil 0W-20. 2016 Camry, 9200 miles

    The Amsoil fuel efficient ATF is what's in there now. It's a little thicker than WS but so far so good. It's been 12k on it so far. It runs the same temperature but it seems to cool down faster when I can do a few miles at a steady speed with the converter locked.

    Amsoil 0W-20. 2016 Camry, 9200 miles

    Appreciate the comments guys. I was a little nervous about doing a longer interval given how hard I am on the car. I'm glad to see it held up so well. The engine sees redline quite often when I don't have pax and I want to get back to a good area. The car leads a rough life for sure, it's not...
