    Moly vs non-Moly oils

    Interesting discussion and article references. It was stated Mobil uses Infineum's tri-nuclear moly and needs a lower treat rate, Yet Toyota's latest SP formulation has about 750 of moly and is made by Mobil. Why would Toyota want such a high level of Moly (or a different type) than Mobil uses...

    Toyota Genuine Motor Oil (TGMO) 0W16 API SP, Date of Manufacture is Oct 2020 I previously posted a UOA on a factory fill with 46 miles on it. Thought it would be interesting to contribute to the form by posting a VOA of TGMO 0W16 API SP so it could be compared to the factory fill. Your...

    TGMO 0W16 Factory Fill, 46 Miles, 2020 Toyota Highlander Hybrid, 2.5L I4 Engine

    I am thinking of 5K for oil and filter going forward. If no VOA's are posted on the TGMO 0W16 by that time I may send a VOA sample off for testing. I do not see much value in a UOA at 5K. Perhaps 20K or 25K would be a better baseline UOA indicator for this engine. I am going to stick with TGMO...

    Toyota 3.5 startup noise and oil weight

    GM Pf64/UPF64R oil filter confusion

    The 35PSI claim has never been fact checked with an authoritative source. I have contacted GM and ACDelco in the past and both refused to confirm the 35PSI figure. The only reference that has been quoted as a source on the internet is a 3rd party autoparts website. Has anyone actually tested...
