I use Mobil 1 5w30 with Mobil 1 filter.

Costs me a little less than $50 for an oil change if I do it myself.

$15 won't get you synthetic oil, or a decent filter.

Any big brand Full synthetic oil is good, just stay far far far away from Quaker State oil, that shit will kill your car.
Using the recommended 5w-30 is also a must, 10w-40 isnt that bad of a change but 15w-55 is too thick, its robbing some horses and is usually used for truck engines.

5w30 Royal Purple is the best for the money at $5.99/qt. Yes others may say they can get full synth for like $2.00/qt but not all full synth motor oils are created equal. Another good one is Redline Oil 5w30 but more expensive at $8.99/qt. The next oil change I'm going Royal Purple 5w30. Oil Filter will be K&N Performance Gold part number HP-1003, as always.


I get my kicks on EC.

OK I'm defending slidr here, LOL.
It depends on where did he get the oil from.

Now, READ my post up there, I paid less than $30 because the damn Walmart near my place sell 5-gallon Mobil 1 for $22, not $18. and Toyota sell the filter for $7, not $5.

Peace.
