Toyota recommends 0w-20 or 5w-20 of motor oil. Does anyone have this car, and tried putting Pennzoil Platinum 5w-20? Results? Any suggestions? I will be changing to synthetic in about 8K. Thanks!

use 5W-20 Pennzoil Plat with confidence! I have the same engine in my Yaris, and have 3 friends with xb's. they either run pennz plat or M1.

My 08' Corolla says 5w30 on the cap but I've been told it's been back-spec'd to 5w20. Does anybody know this for certain?

Thanks guys! I am more leaning to PP, and if not available, I will be using M1.

I think it has, but i haven't had good luck with a 20w on ours. Less consumption with a 30w, and the motor is quieter and no effect on mpg.
