You have to do 5k mile OCI's to maintain the warranty, don't you?
I hope this does better than this after some more miles on engine after all it's a partial synthetic.
I could go 7000+ with even cheaper Shell formula 5W-30 oil in the last car and 3.0 V6 Honda. TBN = 0.9
I'm a little disappointed in the low TBN
The scary part is I'm at 9,100 OCI mile in my '08 Honda Fit and the Mileage Monitor still says 30%.... I do a lot of engine off gliding (P&G w/ FAS) so it's not 9,100 miles with eng running. I plan to let it eat till 15%, per owner manual and than test it and post results for all to look at.
to keep warranty work with TOYOTA need to change oil / filter every 5,000 miles or less . Also , if 5,000 miles not accumulated in 6 months , needs to be changed . There's a booklet that came with the CAMRY that explains the different warranties and what needs to be done to keep it . Keep all receipts for oil and filter , along with the dates they were performed . This includes air filter , etc..
