If you tell me what you're curious about, perhaps I can address those points and be more helpful. That said, It works very well in my car, in my circumstances, and I especially like it on long, higher-speed highway trips compared to the 0W-20. Over 3,000+ miles there is no observable drop in the oil level, and that includes the times I've made some long-distance, higher-speed trips.Just curious, how well does 5w30 work in your Camry? We have the same engine and I’m curious about using 5w30.
However, please note that I'm using M1 EP, different brands might behave differently in your car. When I bought the car, I used Castrol Edge 5W-30 EP (gold bottle) and during that OCI I needed to add a small amount of oil (btwn 1/4 and 1/2 quart) to maintain the level.
I doubt if I'll ever return to 0W-20 although I may try some M1 ESP 0W-30 that I have. In fact, I know I'll try it. I should also note that I'm a Mobil1 guy, don't use other brands (except for that one time when I first bought the car, but that was a unique circumstance).
