Well hello all!

As promised here's another 10k run (6 months) on Super Tech Advanced 0W-20 on my 2017 Toyota Highlander XLE AWD 3.5L (2GR-FKS) with 80,000+ miles. So far this vehicle has only ever seen 10k mile OCIs. As always I used an OEM oil filter. The engine air filter is also OEM and recently replaced 5,000 miles ago. For the next run I didn't replace with Super Tech oil and so my next UOA will be Havoline Lifelong Pro DS 0W-20. No reason for the switch other than a better deal on it right now. I really like that it comes as 6qt too as the oil capacity on the Highlander is 5.8qt. If you'd like to see the previous thread for the first UOA you may click here.

Great report. That oil looks like a good match for that Highlander

ANY oil is a good match for Toyota’s 2GR engines. They’re built really well and are easy on oil. A perfect engine for 10k mile intervals without stressing.

I have been running 10K oil changes on my Toyotas and fords since 1996 and never had an issue getting over 200K miles plus and have never burned a drop of oil. Crazy how people waste their money and bad for the environment by changing oil early just to make themselves feel better

Yea but there are MANY engines out there that can’t handle 10k OCIs due to their bad design (hard on oil) or the driving style / conditions are too SEVERE DUTY to allow 10k OCIs.

There are plenty of UOA reports posted that show the oil is toast well before 10k.
