Based on the "green light" I got here, I went ahead and bought SuperTech 0W-20 for my most recent 4Runner oil change.
I'm happy to save some money on this job, since the maintenance schedule dictates I change the oil & filter every 5000 miles (lots of driving on dusty dirt roads).
However, I wasn't pleased with the seals on the 5-quart and one-quart jugs I got. Removing the screw top revealed a glued-on paper cover. Which should be no big deal. But on both jugs, the paper separated from a plastic layer that stayed glued. That plastic layer was so thin I couldn't simply peel it off. It tore into pieces that I had to remove very carefully so no bits fell into the oil.
Has anyone else buying ST encountered this? A little bit of plastic getting into the oil is unlikely to be catastrophic, but I'd rather not introduce any foreign matter into the system.
