Or Castrol Edge:Want Titanium? Then there’s Castrol GTX Magnatec.
ROAST ?Yes, I know any oil with the certifications required by Toyota for my new Tacoma will be fine. But this is an oil forum, right?
I was a Kendall user for a while just to be different, and while I’m sure it’s still a fine oil, losing their signature titanium left me looking for another choice since it’s a little pricier.
I based the choice largely on reputation, price, and availability.
The winner?? Valvoline Advanced Synthetic 0w-20. I think I’m mostly just interested in seeing how the new-ish formula works out. I’ll be doing somewhere in the area of 7-8k mile oil changes, and there was a UOA on here of a Subaru that went 9k miles with a good report on the D4S engine. It’s also reasonably cheap. If it was more available, I may have gone with PUP, but that’s pricier as well, and I also wondered if I should go completely the other direction and just go with the Costco brand. Once I do the first oil change, I’m not likely to switch going forward, and VAS seems like a good compromise of it all.
