quote:Im currently using AMSOIL Series 3000 with great results so far. I just did a 1600 mile tow with a 6x12' uhaul trailer in my under powered 3.4L Tacoma from california to texas in some pretty good heat and alot of hills and mountains and not a single drop of oil was burned. Im sure there are other oils that would perform the same but i do plan on doing a UOA in the next few months and if all is good ill keep using it.

quote:Very similar base oils and additive packages. The obvious 100°C viscosity difference stands out (8.5 vs. 10.5) and other property differences - lower temp flow difference slightly favoring the thinner 5W-20 and slightly thicker 5W-30 be favored with a larger VI and higher HTHS of 3.2. No difference in price.
what is the difference betwixt XLF & XLM?
