I'm really not sure on that one, but I could ask the next time I am in the store. The store manager told me the secret about their oil being Mobil 1.

I use whatever Toyota Care uses. When that runs out, I usually use Castrol GTX for its cleaning properties (5K interval).

brand of motor oil

the dealer in Wichita the shop is not only dirty but I have heard stories about their work. In my past experience if a shop is dirty and unorganized then the help has no self pride and take no pride in the work they do. 9 times out of 10 they are the ones who try to rip you off. From the old school like to be sure what I pay for is done and done right . I mark the filter and check on things after it is done. Have seen people pay for air filters and not get it as well as other things. Still water Ok is rated way up there was taking truck down but really to much trouble 300 mi for oil change. I want to thank you all for your input I enjoy it

I use Mobil 1 5w30 or Castrol Edge 5w30, whichever is less at Wally World, usually the M1 about 95% of the time. I only use Royal Purple oil filters (made by Champion Labs) same makers of M1 oil filters. Haven't had any issues in my Tacoma or the wife's Suburban.

Also the same makers of STP, AC Delco, and Supertech.

Look down inside the core. If it's a steel tube, it's the same as the M1 and K&N. If it's a black plastic "cage", it's an STP.
