Hello everyone, My 2GR-FE is due for its winter oil change next week and I only have 1 litre of PP 0w-20 left. What should I top it off with? These are my choices: 5w-20 and 5w-30 of the following: QSGB, QSUD or CEB.

How about BUY SOME MORE 0w20... and sorry, but for what car... not really into looking up your engine codes...!

The land of USA-made Subies!
From the readily available 0W-20s I have looked at, PP 0W-20 has the lowest 40* viscosity, meaning it will flow very fast even through a cold engine. That, plus PP's healthy add pack, makes it almost a no-brainer to continue using it IMHO.
