Ditto.
0w20 is only available in full synthetic.
Mobil-1 or Amsoil.

Use the Toyota -YZZD3 filter. Should be around $4 at the dealership and it's one of the best filters available.

If he asked what brand I'd have an opinion. Cap states the kind.

The 20w50 didn't hold up any better than Castrol GTX (non synthetic).

Royal Purple spends more money on purple dye and advertising on gear-head TV shows than they spend on making the product.
