we just took on amsoil here at work, they have this display with gears on 2 sidesand handles so you can turn them. one side has regular oil, the other has the synthietic amsoil. The regular oil side you can feel the notches in the gears, the amsoil side is free and smooth as silk. Synthetic is always best in my opinion for just about anything that has metal to metal. I run royal purple and k/n oil filter, thats what we sell but we just took on lucas/amsoil as well. Sponsor me I will run amsoil! haha

I didn't have any AMSOIL in stock, but will change it next time. I put Mobil 1 in this time, I see the Fram XG Xtragaurd filter is good to 10,000 miles. I will give it a try and states compatible with synthetics.

I believe the capacity is 3.9 quarts. I think I used exactly 3.9-4.0 quarts, just put a little less in and check the level on the stick and put a little bit in at a time to get it up to the correct level.

I use Valvoline Full synthetic, and whatever oil filter comes with it (I buy my oil from Advanced Auto Parts and they run deals of 5 quarts and an oil filter for $25-30)

Okay, original question...the Toyota oil is a syn/fossil blend, so for your first two free oil changes (5,000 miles or six months), that's what you'll get. After that, run what you will. I am running syn blend for one more change then going full synthetic.

I too just switched to synthetic. With kids in sports, and my days and weekends sleeved out until 2027 (when my daughter will be out of High School) with sports, music, family trips, did I mention sports?, I cannot simply drop my car off at the dealership for free oil changes.

I switched over to Valvoline 0-20 syn.

As for the mileage, maybe the motor hasn't broken in yet? I have but 8.5k on mine, and waiting for it to rise soon.
