For those who own a 2006 model year vehicle please soundoff with the preffered oil weight either from the owners manual or filler cap.

Jetta GLI (2.0T) - 5w40 meeting VW 502 00 (5w30 or 0w40 also OK as long as it meets VW 502 00).

Subaru Forester. 5w-30 on cap and in engine. Would like to thin that down a bit, and am watching UOA's of someone with the same engine to see how their results go before I do it.

2006 Civic coupe, Honda USA recommends 5W20, but Honda Japan recommends 0W20 for best fuel economy, so I'm using Mobil 1 0W20.

I should add that (after much deliberation, imagine that) I will also go with M1 0W-20 in my Hondas due to numerous short trips and my impending move to a 'colder' climate. I realize this basically invalidates my last 37 posts, but for BITOG that is not uncommon.

2006 Toyota Tacoma 2006 Toyota 4 runner 1grfe v-6 Sl 5w30 ISLAC energy conserving for 5k 6 mo intervals I will be using Tropartic 5w30 It will be interesting how the two engines will track for me since the Tacoma has a tow package and an oil cooler and the 4 runner does not.
