Where's the definition and chart for "severe" use?
the last bullet point on the first page addresses that.

the second page is confusing though...

i don't see a 1GR for 2011 Tacoma, but i see one for 2011 Tundra, and it says 0/20 and 10k miles. My 2011 Tacoma came with 5/30...so they are saying that the engine that came in my Tacoma has different clearances or operating parameters than the one in the Tundra, ones that allow it to run lighter oil and go longer on the intervals, even though it is the same engine and same year? according to the first page that is what you are left to infer. strange.

Essentially, this doc says if you use your truck as a truck to stay with 5w-30 and 5k OCIs. If you use your truck as a car, go for 0w-20 and better mileage.

I am about to hit 1k miles on my V6 4x4 access cab and going to change it then to 5w-30 castrol GTX with a NAPA 3148 filter...I always like doing the first oil change early to help get all the chips out of the engine. I normally run engines way past the 200k mark without issues.

Whoa! Man you didn't read it carefully enough. That's NOT what it says!

The 2TR-FE 4-cylinder engine (4Runner and Tacoma) is an exception to this new change interval program; this engine has notbeen approved for the 10,000 mile interval at this time. A 5,000 mile oil change interval is still required for these vehicles. [again, emphasis mine]

I'm sure they will charge extra. The early change is not necessary.
