Opinions sought on the effect of going to 5w20 Amsoil bs 0w30 Amsoil on fuel mileage. Thanks. [ December 24, 2002, 06:13 PM: Message edited by: aldive ]

Honestly, you probably won't notice a huge difference in MPG between those two oils. Less than 0.5 MPG, so your gas mileage will vary more just from driving style and conditions. Most people see bigger than a 0.5 MPG difference from one tank to the next anyways.

Speaking of milage. So far it looks like I might have dropped almost 1 mpg by going to the 5W-40 Totella Syn from the 10W-30. But as Patman sait I also could be a variation based only on 1 tank. 2.4 Toyota 4WD on a 250 mile trip. Usually does 26 mpg-did a tad over 25 mpg.
