I don't have any 5w20 and I'm going to be towing my @ss off starting next weekend. My manual and cap says 5w30 or 10w30.

5w30 would be fine if you are towing 10w30 will not flow as easily at any temp i dont think the manuel says 10w30 in a toyota if it does i am suprised all we do are engines the thinner stuff keeps the bearings slightly cooler and gets to the overhead cams on a lot of engines faster when cold and hot!

The manual states you can use 10w30 if 5w30 is not available. Not much difference with the mild temps here in Maryland. They are both still 30's when they heat up to operating temps, correct?

Correct.. although if the temps are under 60 degrees you would benefit from the 5w30 I just looked it up on both my shop program and Castrol motor oil info and they both said 5w30 I originally thought 5w20 but that was not mentioned...

what happened to the good old days when you could open the hood and look at all the good stuff in the engine bay? Now you get to look at 4-6 yellow caps or handles, and a 3' wide piece of plastic. I personally like looking at wires and hoses. on topic now....I would have chose the PP also

Oh, man! NOW you've done it. You should never listen to those rabid P.P. fanboys. You really should have chosen the YELLOW BOTTLE!! (ALWAYS choose the YELLOW BOTTLE!) Oh, well. I suppose it's too late now. Your poor car will be lucky to make it out of the driveway before it EXPLODES!!
